WHen clicking on the All Programs button within the Start menu bar, it goes
nowhere instead of listing all the items.

It used to work but I accidently dragged the Start folder into another
location, then straight back and now it won't work.

Any ideas on how to regain the function?

Hi,

have you tried the following:

Start, Settings, Taskbar & Start Menu....

from here you should be able to have an overview of where your programs etc
have gone, and drag them back to where they should be. If you cant find them,
do a search for a common file such as word and note where it is located
(excluding the ones that are where they are as expected such as C:\Program
Files etc.)

The programs are where they are supposed to be, it is the function of the
Start Menu which is not working.?
