As per title, I was changing some stuffs (but I can't remember on what I did .. LOL!) then after restart my taskbar stucked (as per in the picture) and I couldn't click the START MENU (it's inaccessible). It looks like Windows 10 taskbar now .. and the clock, network etc. also missing.

Anyone could teach me on how to revert back to original Windows 11 taskbar? no reformat or re-installations please :)

Thanks in advance !

Did you try the old approach?
Alt+ctrl+del. Open task manager. Find windows explorer and click restart. Sometimes it helps in Windows 10.

Some have gone to great lengths to get a W10 style taskbar, even to the extent of replacing explorer.exe with one copied from Win10.

If you have done anything along those lines, then repairing the component store followed by running SFC should undo it for you.



If that fails, then an in-place repair upgrade should work, keeping all your files, installed apps and most of your settings.
