Windows11,Taskbar will not load. Cannot open start menu
There are widespread reports of the Start Menu and taskbar not functioning on PCs that have updated to todays new release of Windows 11, build 22000.176 for Beta/Release Preview channels, and 22449 on Dev channel. It also may affect older versions too as some commenters have mentioned. If you are on Windows 11 and your Start Menu and/or taskbar is not loading right, crashing, missing all the icons/clock, and otherwise being useless.
