What I've found is that Win10 shuts down the video several seconds before it finishes cleaning up the files and shutting down the computer. If you are going to remove power to the computer (power switch, ups off, etc.), don't assume that is safe just because the monitor has shut down. Wait until the Windows has completely shut down the computer (power LED off) before removing power or you risk damaging some of the Windows files. I haven't experienced any Win10 issues once I realized this.

Only use Edge to read the news articles on first page-- I normally use Chrome or Firefox. Both work just fine. Guess it's sort of like I never used Internet Explorer browser? Smiley

Good advice. Shutting off the video gives the impression the PC has shut down but it can be quite a few seconds before it's really safe to remove the mains power. Same with laptops; don't close the lid until all lights go off and all hard drive activity stops.

Creating a new user account (profile) can sometimes fix the start button problem. Try enabling the built-in administrator account and if that works a new profile should be OK too. Bit of a pain to have to move all your files and email settings though :-(

You can enable the built-in administrator account at an elevated (run as administrator) command prompt:

net user administrator /active:yes
