Microsoft withdraws Windows 11 update after start menu problems

Some new updates to Windows 11 caused problems with the start menu for some users. Clicking the start button or using the Windows key had no effect on these users, so the start menu could not be opened.

Microsoft fixes the issue where the start menu did not open. According to the tech giant, it concerns the update with the KB5014668 characteristic and updates that appeared after that. Microsoft has since resolved the issue by rolling back the updates. Users should be able to use the home button again at this point.

Last week it was announced that individual users can now purchase a separate Windows 11 Home or Pro license. Microsoft also introduced a Taskbar Overflow feature that can show more icons on the taskbar.
