Microsoft released Windows 11 in sharp version to the public the other day, and as usual with new system versions, there are the occasional bug. One of the stranger is that some users after the installation have not received the new Taskbar, reports Bleeping Computer.
Instead, the new bar appears the same as on Windows 10. It might not hurt as much in itself (some users will probably miss it even if they got the new one), but unfortunately the Start menu or search bar does not work when it has become so here.
The problem has also been seen during the beta period, with various more or less drastic proposals for solutions.
Appuals has published several things you can try, the first of which comes directly from Microsoft, published during the beta period this summer. This involves deleting a registry entry and restarting the computer. You can do that via The activity manager, Archive -> Run new activity. fill in cmd and tick administrative permission and a command prompt will open where you can fill in and run the following command:
reg delete HKCUSOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionIrisService /f && shutdown -r -t 0
If it does not work after the reboot, you may have to resort to one of the other suggestions, or in the worst case, reinstall the system from the installation media you create from an iso file on another computer.
