Restarted my computer and once I booted up to Windows 11, I had no Taskbar. I couldn't access my settings or do any shortcuts. Only thing I could do is open my browser, but once I played a video it crashed almost instantly. The Windows 11 team needs to fix this ASAP.

I am having the same problem, after the last cumulative update today. I have tried every command line that I have found, to undo the last update, to no avail. Loading control panel just gives a 'file system error'. I can load my browser by using the 'run' in task manager, but cannot get anything within the Windows system to run except command line.
Same issue I'm facing & it's really serious one.

@roalt I've got the same problem if you Ctrl+Alt+Del and then open task manager-->file --> run new task and then type control you have limited options available there. But I haven't found any fix yet.

Solution

 Hey Josh, I have found a temporary fix. So do (CTRL + SHIFT + ESC) That pulls up Task Manager. Next you go to file and start new task. You are going to type in (control). Then you are going to go to Clock and Region-Date and Time-Change Date and time. You are going to skip forward a few months. Your taskbar should come back. Then you are going to go do the same thing and go back to todays day again. It should start working. @josh_65

Doesn’t work

This works for me. I can see the task bar post changing the time. There is an article as well. The issue is with cumulative update.

Yeah its broken for me alos
That happened to me so I tried a bit of task manager. After that didn't work I followed this guide: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/5-steps-fix-windows-10-taskbar-issues/#:~:text=%5BSolution%5D%20Taskba....
It worked for me
