    Fix problems with the Start menu or Cortana

    Run the Windows Store Apps troubleshooter.

    Type “Troubleshooting” in search box and press Enter.

    Click on View all on top left pane.

    Select “Windows Store Apps” from the list and follow the prompts for troubleshooting.

    You may also create another user account with same administrative privileges and recheck the same.
