    Items pinned to Explorer on Taskbar no longer open with left click


    Just did a clean install of W10 Pro X64 on my recently inherited PC and have discovered that folders I have pinned to Explorer on the Taskbar can no longer be opened with left click. Have to use right click and the Open.
    This did work normally when I cloned the system from my old box to the new one, so I'm pretty sure it's nothing to do with hardware.

    Update:
    Tried in Safe Mode - no difference.

    Hello Jim, :)

    As a test, if you unpin and re-pin one of these affected items on the taskbar, does it open with a left click afterwards?

    Nope.

    However, I have installed a second Windows 10 and everything is fine on the base system.
    So I am now busy adding apps one at a time, with a restore point prior to each update, until I find what causes the problem.
