I had this same problem (not being able to open start menu). I would also sometimes get a pop up window when shutting down, saying, 'Task Host Window Microsoft\windows\plug and play\device install reboot required'. I think these 2 problems went together. I found 2 solutions at Microsoft and have not had any problems since. The first solution is the easiest and least intrusive, but both are easy to do. Also, a couple of people wrote that they had solved it by installing the latest audio and/or ethernet drivers.
Solution 1: "Apparently Microsoft added a new option in the Accounts section in 1703 (Settings -> Accounts -> Sign-In Options) called "Use my sign-in info to automatically finish setting up my device after an update or restart.". The dutch website says the option doesn't really work and to turn this option off and it should fix the task bar/start menu issue. I am testing this on my desktop at the moment, shutting off/restarting my Desktop, and haven't ran into the task bar/start menu issue yet."
Solution 2: 1- Right click on start menu and click on Run. "For those who the start menu does not respond with right click, right click on taskbar - click on Task Manager - from File menu on the left upper corner select Run new task".
2-Write the command regedit and click Enter.
3- Go to path [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WpnUserService].
4-Double click on Start from the right side.
5-Change the value data to 4 then OK.
I hope this helps.

I'm actually surprised that the 2nd solution didn't work only because it's worked for so many people. Sorry it didn't help you.
You can try opening settings by pressing your windows key and i at the same time. This article has other ways to open settings: https://www.digitalcitizen.life/introducing-windows-10-ways-open-settings
Also, from what I read, some people were able to get the start problem fixed by updating the latest audio, video, and ethernet drivers. One guy uninstalled and reinstalled his printer, and said that helped him.
Really hope this helps.

Yes. reboot is restart. Did you try windows+i to open settings?

Did you try any of the other suggestions in the article on getting your start menu to open?
The other solution I've seen mentioned a lot is this:

I know it's incredibly frustrating trying to find answers and trying so many solutions for something that shouldn't be a problem in the first place. If making another user account worked for you, as an administrator account you'll be able access everything on your computer.
