Wanted to share a quick update and fix for the recent Windows 10 start menu empty issue. Asked around on Twitter and found helpful article (
https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/02/05/its-not-just-you-windows-10-search-is-giving-blank-results/) from @JM2K69 mentioning two Registry keys which need to be set to zero value. After applying and rebooting the Start Menu appear normally again. Cheers.
