No. My Razer Gaming controller keeps working the windows start menu. The window you get when you hit the windows key on the keyboard. There must be sometype of overlay in Windows 10 to allow the controller to access windows. The d-pad will go up and down, A is enter, B goes back.

Hi my name is Ross, I'm an independent advisor. I'd be happy to help with your issue.

It depends on which version of the controller you have, if you check the Razer support page you should find details on the software needed to configure this if available by searching the model name.

Any controller works the start menu of windows 10. It's not just because i'm using a Razer one. There must be some overlay running in Windows 10 to allow controllers to control the start menu, but i ahven't yet seen it in services windows and under group policy.


I'm sure i'll find it once i dig more, the issue i keep coming up with is once Windows 10 updates some stuff keep turning on. I wish they had an all off on non core services so i could be done with it. I run my computer like a personal computer, i like to know everything that is running and why.

I have cortana, Edge, Search, Start menu online access, Windows Store auto update, Windows Defender through group policy, Most all bloatware from Windows Install disabled like Candy Crush, All games and most unwanted apps (one drive etc). Plus i don't auto sign in using my email as i don't care for device login on another computer to have it save.

I run one of my logins as a ASIO audio studio for making music as to why i'm trying to get everything that i don't need turned off, because Studio One or VEP running 64Gb of RAM with samples can crash from one dumb service, and it takes 14 mins to load.

Plus with my computer using dual Xeon 2670s with 64Gb of ECC RAM i turn off Windows Defender as i have never got malware on this computer in 3 years. I'll dig more into the services tab to see what i don't need and turn them off one by one to see if the controller stops working the start menu.

Windows should have a creative install mode that doesn't install all the junk for your everyday computer. I want my power, not access to a million of unwanted software. Plus now with MS pushing for Xbox on PC, it seems Windows now has another services overlay for that as well, plus the game dvr (easy to turn that off though).


I wonder if one can directly remove edge from Windows, i never will use it, Chrome is just fine.

Hi,

I can't see anything for that model of controller, I'd still suggest you contact Razor support for assistance.

Regarding Edge, this is a core competent of Windows 10 so can't really be removed. However as I'm sure you've already done you can set Chrome as your default browser.

Ross

I'm not sure why you're fixed on my razer branded controller, it also does it with a power a controller, and a micrososft controller. It just means that there is a overlay for controllers for the start menu i need to find and shut off.
