    Question Win+X Power Menu shortcuts do not open in Windows 10

    As a new member unsure of where to post so..

    On Windows 10 right click on start menu for Progrms and features to Desktop
    These items won't open tried running sfc /SCANNOW AND Dism nothing found. Get-Appx package not found

    This menu works ok on desktop computer but not on laptop since update to Windows 10 Please can anyone help with a fix?

    Open C:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\W inX folder and see if you are able to open the items from there.

    Enter Clean Boot State and see if the WinX Menu, as it is called works for you. If yes, then maybe some explorer shell extension or addon is interfering. Download and use SysInternal Autoruns. Under Explorer tab, try and identify the offender, and disable one or more addons/shell extensions and see if it helps. It could be some non-Microsoft shell extension. You will have to do it by trial and error method and restart explorer after every try. Else you could use Nirsoft's ShellExView.
