My start button does not work correctly. the left hand click on my mouse does not open my apps. The right had click on the mouse opens up items which allow me to close down my PC.


Please hold down the Power button for 10 seconds until your computer powers off. Wait 1 minute then power back on your computer.

Do you still have the same issue after the soft reset?

Presumably the start button will work when I close down and reboot?

That is correct -- If it does not work for some reason, please let me know and I can connect to your computer to fix the issue.
