Windows 11: the latest update makes the Start menu disappear – Geeko

The latest Windows 11 update may have some unpleasant surprises in store for you.

Since the beginning of the week, Windows 11 support has turned into a real complaints office. The new Windows update upgrades the operating system version KB5015882 to KB5015814. Since downloading it, users have noticed that their Start menu has disappeared.

“After installing this update, we received reports that a small number of devices may be unable to open the Start menu. On affected devices, clicking or selecting the Start button or using the Windows key on your keyboard may have no effect”, says Microsoft. 20 Minutes reports that the root of the problem would be linked to a new functionality added to the taskbar. The latter makes it possible to filter urgent notifications, even when the concentration assistant is active. This wizard lets you choose the notifications you want to see and hear.

Seemingly good news, the bug seems to disappear once the computer restarts. Another solution is to use the Known Issue Rollback (KIR). This feature allows administrators to cancel update processes, excluding security patches, in the event of a problem. “Please note that resolution may take up to 24 hours to automatically propagate to consumer devices and unmanaged business devices”, says Microsoft. A patch intended to solve this problem would be in the process of being deployed.
