Windows 10 is still less than a year old and hence users may encounter different problems in the system. Errors that have no apparent reason and also only affect certain users, so it is even more difficult to determine the cause of the problem and its solution.

In this sense, one of the elements that is causing this type of problems is the taskbar of Windows 10, since we have seen how on numerous occasions certain users have reported different errors. If your taskbar in Windows 10 stops working, crashes or does not respond intermittently, we recommend you try these steps to solve the problem.

Restart Windows Explorer

One of the simplest solutions and therefore the first thing we can try. To do this, press the Windows + R key combination and execute the taskmgr.exe command. This will open the Windows Task Manager and then go to the Processes tab. Once there, if we scroll down, we can find the Windows Explorer process.

Once we have found it, we select it by clicking on the process and then click on the Restart button that is in the lower right part of the window. This all it does is kill the Windows Explorer process and restart it after a while. After it is restarted, we must check if the taskbar works again without problems.

Check for conflicts

On certain occasions, there may be some kind of conflict with browser add-ons, therefore, it is good that we do a clean start of Windows 10 to determine if programs that are running in the background may be interfering with the browser or failing with the taskbar. To know how to perform a clean start in Windows 10

Reregister the taskbar

If the problem continues, then we can try to re-register the taskbar from PowerShell commands. First of all, it is advisable to create a restore point to avoid any problem. Next, we run the Windows PowerShell tool with administrator permissions and execute the following command:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register “$ ($ _. InstallLocation) \ AppXManifest.xml”}

Once it has been executed correctly, we go to the path C: / Users / name / AppData / Local / from our browser, we look for the folder TileDataLAyer and we delete it. If it were not possible with simply pressing the Delete key, we will have to execute services.msc to open the Service Manager and for the Tile Data model server service. Next, we delete the folder and check if the taskbar already works normally.
