Have you tried the USB keyboard since installing the Windows 10 drivers, for now just let us know the answer and keep using the wired keyboard while we check out the task bar and start button.... Go to the full post »

Got a few problems after installing Windows 10.

 

First off I can't seem to use the search box in the taskbar, it won't let me type in it or anything. Also I can't unpin or pin programs to the taskbar. And the start button won't work either no matter if I click it or press Windows key+X command.

 

Also whenever I try to open Internet Explorer from the taskbar shortcut it opens google chrome instead.

Hello Lucky Dearly,

 

If this is a brand name computer can you post the make and model name or number for us, if a custom build, post the brand and model name or number of the motherboard.

Obvious question but have to ask, is your keyboard proven to be working, if you are using a USB type keyboard but have or can borrow a wired PS/2 one give that a try.

 

Have you installed the Windows 10 drivers for the MB and starting with the chipset drivers first, if not, download them from here and install them, the chipset drivers are the INF drivers on the list.

 

Will come back to the IE/Google issue.

I'll try to update the drivers for my MB

 

Edit: All drivers updated.

Do you have a wired keyboard to try in case the problem is with the USB port/s.

 

You need to install all of the available drivers for the board but the chipset ones are the most important and need to be installed first so that the other drivers install correctly.

To see if this is a Windows issue download then run the All in One Repair from here, disregard the malware guidance but follow the other steps to the letter and in particular ensuring that you first create a new restore point and perform a proper Windows clean boot before running the repair, details for the clean boot here.

Okay, I'll leave a post for you to see later on once I'm finished with the repairs

 

Edit: Repairs worked though I still have the IE icon on the taskbar still launching Google Chrome though.

Repairs done  :thumbsup:

 

I still have the IE icon on the taskbar still launching Google Chrome though.

 

 

That will be because you have set Chrome as your default browser, do you not want Chrome as your default browser, I can suggest a way that you can keep Chrome as the default browser and have quick access to IE as well, you cannot have it pinned to the task bar though, I personally do not have either pinned to the task bar as it just adds to the boot time.
