Right-Click On Start And Windows+X Fail To Open Power User Menu On Windows 8.X

This one has been bugging me for a couple of weeks and I just managed to find a fix. Right-clicking on the start button and pressing Windows+X failed to do anything.

The fix?

1) Open up command prompt and run:

xcopy %SystemDrive%UsersDefaultAppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsWinX %userprofile%AppDataLocalMicrosoftWindowsWinX /e /y

2) Log out and log in again. Everything should work as expected.

  1. I’m curious, do you have any suspicions as to what caused it to stop working in the first place? I was just thinking if this happened to may what sort of search terms I’d use to find a fix. Probably “Windows+X” and “broken” or “won’t open” I guess.

    Thanks for posting the fix! I hope I never have to use it 😛

  2. You are the MAN!!!
