After my recent Windows 11 Beta update, I experienced the following:

- An empty taskbar

- A windows key that just restarts Windows Explorer instead of opening the start menu

- Having to wait nearly a minute for a folder on my desktop to open

- The inability to open Settings, which Task Manager informs me is "file system error (-2147219200)" when I try to execute from Task Manager (which I'm under the impression means it has been corrupted). And when trying to open settings from "This PC," all that happens is that Windows Explorer freezes, then after about two minutes, it resets itself.

 

These are all the problems on the surface; I'm sure there are more I have yet to find. I cannot roll back to a previous update because I cannot open Settings.
