    'All apps' in Windows menu not responding

    When I click 'all apps' in the Windows menu it doesn't respond when scrolling or clicking a program. I can however use the TAB/DOWN/UP keys to scroll through the list and use ENTER to start the program. Is there any fix for this?

    Troubleshooting suggestion :

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    I tried both commands but both said my system is fine and it didn't find any problems.

    Sorry, I don't know the answer for that.

    Please wait for someone else to come along.
    Good luck.

    Hi, slightly similar is this rambling thread -> check for an update for your mouse driver.
    Solved I can't click on anything in the start menu. - Page 5 - Windows 10 Forums
    Skip to page 4 maybe.

    As you specs aren't complete I don't know if you've a laptop or a desktop e.g.
    So.. if you're using a wireless mouse, try a wired one or your touchpad if you have one.
