Windows 10 Technical Preview StartMenu and Search not working

Microsoft-Windows-10-Banner

Issue with windows 10 TechPreview Build 9926.
After installing the lastest KB’s today, the startMenu and the Search were not working anymore.

I fixed this by running the following command in Powershell(Admin)
Start powershell as Administrator

Paste the following command.

  1. If the above solution does not work you can always go back to the xmlstartmenu

    Go to Registry Editor
    Navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Explorer>Advance
    You need to create a DWORD value with the name ‘EnableXamlStartMenu’ and value as ‘0’.

    Logoff and logon to the machine, you will have the old Start Menu
