Windows 10: Can't right click on empy spaces on the start menu

    Can't right click on empy spaces on the start menu

    Since this started out as me trying to customize the start menu, I guess I'll post this here. If the mods feel another place is more appropriate, please move this thread there.

    I've seen screen shots of people right clicking on empty spaces of the start menu to go to properties, but when I right click on start menu empty spaces, nothing happens. I can right click on the icons perfectly fine but the empty spaces do nothing for me. What's wrong and how do I fix it?

    Nothing is wrong with your computer.
    You are not supposed to get anything if you right click at the open spot of Start menu.

    You might have misinterpreted what you saw ?

    I saw the picture from this site:

    Third picture down. Maybe it was a different windows 10 build?
