Windows 10 Trouble : Taskbar Issues
Error Trouble : My taskbar is completely unresponsive – I can’t get anything to work on it, even pressing the windows key doesn’t open anything. I cant’ even open the ‘Get Help’ app, and it’s incredibly frustrating. It was kinda bareable, but today, for some reason I can’t seem to log into OneDrive? I don’t know if the two issues are correlated or not, but I’d really appreciate some help!

How to Fix Taskbar Issues on Windows 10?

  1. Hi and thanks for reaching out. My name is Bernard an Independent Advisor and a Windows fan like you. I’ll be happy to help you out today.

    Actually I have the same problem and by following the steps below fixed my issue, I know some of these steps already done, you have just skip it if you think it will have the same result.

    Method 1. Repair Windows Store apps and Taskbar:

    1. Go to settings> Update and Security> troubleshoot > Additional troubleshooter> Then click Windows Store apps
    2. Temporarily Disable the Anti-virus (If you have third party anti viru)
    3. Run Powershell
    4. On Powershell(admin), copy and paste the command below:

    Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml”}

    Method 2. repair Windows Store and update components

    Open Powershell with Admin or CMD with Admin (Press Windows key + X then click Windows Powershell(Admin))
    Copy each line of command to Powershell then press enter (one line at a time)
    net stop bits
    net stop wuauserv
    net stop appidsvc
    net stop cryptsvc
    Del “%ALLUSERSPROFILE%Application DataMicrosoftNetworkDownloader*.*”
    rmdir %systemroot%SoftwareDistribution /S /Q
    rmdir %systemroot%system32catroot2 /S /Q
    regsvr32.exe /s atl.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s urlmon.dll
    regsvr32.exe /s mshtml.dll
    netsh winsock reset
    netsh winsock reset proxy
    net start bits
    net start wuauserv
    net start appidsvc
    net start cryptsvc

    -Once done restart the device and check

    If none will work from the above solution I suggest to do an in-place upgrade wherein it will upgrade the device to the latest version and repair all issues without deleting any files.

    Note: before doing this make sure to create a restore point: https://support.microsoft.com/en-hk/help/402753…

    1. go to this link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo…

    2. Select Download tool, and select Run. You need to be an administrator to run this tool.

    3. On the License terms page, if you accept the license terms, select Accept.

    4. On the What do you want to do? page, select Upgrade this PC now, and then select Next.

    5. After downloading and installing, it should fix the issue.

    Reference: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-downlo…
    Note: if you receive error: “This Pc can’t be upgrade, follow the steps below”
    Method 1. Go to C:$WINDOWS.~BTSourcesPanther then delete the file name compatscancache.dat
    Then try again or reboot the PC first then try again.
    You might not see the folder as it is hidden, make sure to show hidden files first.

    Let me know how does it goes and I hope that helps.
