I updated windows 11 and when my pc restarted, my taskbar was completely blank and I can't open my start menu or file explorer. I can't even use the windows key + i shortcut to go back a version. Windows key doesn't work at all. No start menu button either

Yes this happened to 2 of my laptops that I just updated today. No Start or taskbar, I have to use my task manager and run the shell:appsfolder task to attempt accessing files and opening programs. Can’t even open up settings either. I’m considering downloading a windows 11 iso using another computer and reinstalling the .132 build.

Attempting to revert the feature update just results in a failure for me, so I'm stuck waiting for a fix to pop up or to re-install Windows.

Same to me, I already had Windows 11. I just updated today and after restarting Windows is really slow the bar at the bottom is gray without showing any icon or hour. System very slow. I opened task manager with control alt delete and from there ran explorer. After wait 30/40 seconds I can see my files. I cannot open chrome or iexplorer or settings to check last build installed. Only working manage by clicking This PC in explorer and the icon in the top. From there I can access the log nothing else. Right clic also not working. Control C and P is not working neither.
I did a backup using icons for copy and paste and external USB hard drive.
I did a hold left shift and restart using control alt delete over the icon in the right corner. After restarting go to troubleshoot, advance, uninstall update, uninstall last features... The message said is restoring last windows and after restarting I got my windows 11 back.
I went to windows update and said:
Windows 11 insider preview 22449.1000 (rs_prerelease) ... Pending download.
I pause updates for a week.
It is confusing, In the update history said that the same preview version was successfully installed today. If I resume is trying to download again the same 22449.1000 version.
