Laptop start button.
« on: Tuesday 15 May 18 19:07 BST (UK) »
Hi all,I'm having trouble with my laptop,a lenovo ideapad 110. for the last couple of days when i click on the start button it doesn't function,the speaker volume button doesn't work either.everything else works fine apart from these two buttons,but without a working start button i can't access my pictures to upload some of my recent shots.i googled the symptoms but found the answers a bit beyond my (very limited ability)does anyone out there have a not too techy answer to this??
                        regards,john.

Firstly can you explain which button is the "start button".
The start button is what you turn your laptop on with.
Are you referring to the icon you "click onto" to access your photos.

The Windows start button is by default on the bottom left of the taskbar.

This sounds like a simple fix to try.

In the meantime:

Right click in an empty space on your Taskbar
Choose Start Task Manager
Choose 'File', then 'New Task', then 'Browse' to open whichever file or folder you want.

Hi Dundee,i tried the taskbar option,a small window opened and there are only two options to use,it looks like this.
Taskbar.
Microsoft edge.
Settings.
The windows button on the keyboard doesn't open either. ???
