Missing START context menu Server 2012 R2

Good Morning,

I have a DC that is currently presenting a strange problem.  The server is 2012 R2 and the whilst the start button appears it is has no functions attached to it and is unresponsive.  Obviously I can get to areas within the server using other methods but would really like to restore this functionality.  Initially I was thinking perhaps someone had restricted access over the Domain Controllers GPO  this is not the case as the other DC is fully operational.  Any suggestions?

Hi Thanks for the responses ..

This pretty much happened overnight its not drastic but I miss the start button. Normal action on the working DC is click - for Metro  - right click for context menu (Windows + X).

All of the above is missing have attempted the WINX file copy and also dropped the server to Core and Back to GUI using Powershell. Problem still exists for all users


Just annoying   I suspect a patch but nothing online thus far
