I've noticed a curious problem on the laptop I upgraded from Win8 to Win8.1 and then to Win10.

It seems after certain updates the task bar seems to not fully load and the start menu also doesnt load up either. I can still shut it down by right clicking on the start button and accessing that menu.

I usually end up opening cmd with admin privileges and typing;

sfc /scannow

dism /online /cleanup-image /scanhealth

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

Then reboot. So far everytime I've done this the task bar works again. I'm not sure why this works as it never shows up any errors.

Having looked around for a fix on your issue this seems the best one

The Last Resort: Create a New User Account

If youíve tried everything else and still canít manage to make your Taskbar behave as it should, thereís one method thatís something of a silver bullet, even if it comes with a caveat. Creating a new local user account seems to remedy these issues in most cases, but itís obviously a little inconvenient.

I have always seen disaster when people do upgrade installations. I make a point of doing bare metal installations on every box I get and never trust OEMSí efforts where Windows ends up rather  polluted or bloated.
