Hi, Cortana search stopped working so I followed some of the steps in this video:

click here the start button doesn't even work.

The last Win10 update seems to have messed Cortana up for me.

Thanks in advance - Olivia

CAn you get to settings - update and security - stsem restore?

Would you know how to do that without the Start menu?

I can access Windows Explorer.

try power on then off again after 5 seconds repeat 3 times then it should boot to repair menu where you can access cmd prompt

in cmd propmt type rstrui.exe and the restore wizard should then open
