About a week ago before the free upgrade ended I upgraded my PC from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and I was really excited but then I noticed many bugs that disappointed me-

1 WiFi connection gets stuck on verifying and connecting which forces me to use the PdaNet app on my phone to connect to the internet.

2 Sometimes after long periods of use the Start Menu and Cortana will crash and will never open up unless I restart my computer.

3 Steam will take a really long time to log me in or will sometimes just not log me in at all and if I click cancel and try to reopen it then it will just crash unless I restart my computer.

4 Whenever I shut down my computer it will not completely shut down unless I turn it off manually with the PSU switch.

Thats all I can think of for now but will add more things to this thread if I find anything else. If there is a way to fix all of this then please tell me how and please help me out here because i'm getting tired of dealing with all of these bugs/crashes.

I think it would be reasonable to suggest resetting your pc

 

Read the articles below carefully.

Yes but are there any other methods besides reinstalling Windows 10 because I don't want to have to go through that long process again.

After re reading your list of problems, I think the lesser of the two evils would be to reset.

 

Resetting would more or less be a guaranteed fix.......whereas attacking each of the problems you have listed there would take a great deal of time.......and you may end up resetting anyway !

When you finally get it back and working nicely.....

 

Get yourself an external hard drive.....download and install Macrium, and take an image of your hard drive

 

At least then if win 10 goes pear shaped again (which it is prone to do)...then you have a good backup that you can simply install over the top of the current program/files

 

If you make a "thing" of redoing the backup every week or two weeks.....you will always have a fresh copy to go to

 

Taking an image takes approx 25 minutes...restoring an image takes about the same time.

 

Macrium Reflect 

 

In macrium it is important  to  create rescue media

 

When you install Macrium you will see this::

Dont put it off....DO IT.

 

THEN....click on "other tasks", and "Add Recovery Boot Menu Option"

 

Thats it.

What about something cloud related in case I happen to lose the external hard drive or the external hard drive breaks.

I have discovered something that I think is really strange with Windows 10. I decided to try and remove my USB wifi adapter from the computer and tried to boot without it and I noticed that many of the bugs may have possibly disappeared by just removing the wifi adapter. I can still easily get internet through the PdaNet application on my Android phone. First of all without the USB wifi adapter Steam loaded up right away. The next thing I noticed was that the start menu and cortana would not crash. Another thing I noticed was that when I selected shutdown on Windows 10 the computer was able to shut down like right away. Is it possible that Windows 10 has some strange bugs that somehow are caused through the network card? I am not sure if the problem is fixed yet but I'll still have to test it out again in order to know for sure whether the network card was the main cause of all these bugs/crashes.
