        We have several hundred Windows 10 Enterprise 1803/1809 computers on a domain. Over the last couple of months, we have been upgrading them to 1903 with no apparent problems. When we upgrade, we log in to the machines to make sure everything seems to be working.

        Yesterday we noticed that if a new user logs in, the Windows Start Button does nothing when you left click on it. Yesterday is the first time since upgrading a new user attempted to log in to a machine. Existing users with profiles on the local machine have no problems. This is why it took so long to find the problem. The users were testing their own machines after the upgrade.

        It is not limited to one machine, every machine we tried with a new user logon had the Start Button non-functional but any users that already had an account on the local machine, the Start Button worked fine.

        Any ideas of how to get the Start Button working for new users? Original these were imaged machines (I think 1803) using MDT/ADK with PXE boot.

        Live Long and Prosper!!

        Had that occur on a couple machines I did. After letting the machine settle down and restarting (right-click restart) it fixed itself and has worked normally ever since.

        I’ve noticed this several times as well and concur with @cyberSAR… just *right*-click on the Start button (it’s left-click which doesn’t work) and choose the option to Shut down or sign out.


        Hope this helps…
