    I am wondering if anyone has had similar problems and what you did.

    The other day I updated my surface and then hit the windows key on the keyboard to open a program. Nothing happened, I then touched it, it turned blue but wouldn't open.

    I tried several more times, restarted and nothing changed. This has now been going on for a few days and I can't seem to find a solution, anyone got ideas

    Thanks

    When you type Winver from the Start Menu which Build are you using?

    I had this happen on a desktop system and tried 6 or 7 suggested fixes, I ended up restoring from a backup image. The second time I had this happen, different desktop, this registry hack fixed it. [FIX] Start Button Not Working In Windows 10

    Fabulous. I was determined after the first go around that it wouldn't get me twice. That solution is pretty buried unless you include the word registry in your search. Who would have known?
