    Try rolling back to a restore point before this happened. Also try a different mouse and keyboard.

    Just tried another mouse & quit my mouse software but still the same on those 2 applications

    I had this once before but it was a one off, seems to be all the time now after the anniversary update.

    Doubtful that it has to do with the update. Could be just a Mouse and Keyboard driver issue. Any third party software like Classic Shell or Start 10 running to give you the older Windows 7 style desktop? Did you try rolling back to a previous System Restore point before this problem started.

    Not rolled back as I'm not totally sure when it started. I have a logitech k800 keyboard & G602 mouse. Like I say I've also quit the logitech software & tried it wiht a standard MS mouse.

    From the applications I have tested & there has been quite a few only Steam & uPlay are giving me this issue, both off the start menu (A-Z list bit) & from my short cuts on the right hand pane of the start menu. Wondering if its a weird permission issue with that shortcut but cant see anything wrong & I have recreated them.
