There is a Windows software that is called Start Menu X, I mistakenly uninstalled that software in a friend’s computer while I was trying to uninstall some software that was responsible for the background data usage in his computer.
I did not even know that the PC I was working on had a start menu problem, So after the software was uninstalled, everything in the taskbar including the start menu stopped functioning.

After the re-installation of this app, everything in the taskbar started working fine including the start menu.
So in the course of the post, we’ll be fixing our Windows 10 start menu problem using this method.
There are other Windows start menu replacement software, but in this case; we’ll be using Start Menu X PRO.
