I have a really weird problem with Windows 10

When I right click on either the task bar or start menu I no longer get a right click menu

Is there any way I can fix this?


Hello Captcrunch welcome to our forum:

Could you try the following:
Press Windows Key + R to open the run dialouge
Run the following command to open an administrator PowerShell window:
PowerShell -ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted

Then paste the following PowerShell command into the resulting window and press enter:
Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}

This will take a while and some errors may flash up this is normal.

Once it’s complete reboot the computer and see if you’re able to right click on the task bar again, let us know how you get on!
