    Right click on start menu problem


    Hi,
    I have a very strange problem in Win 10 Pro RTM:
    when I right click on the start menu and the conext menu appears like this:

    Click image for larger version. 

Name:	Print Screen.jpg 
Views:	414 
Size:	126.0 KB 
ID:	27535

    the only links that works are the first four starting from the botom (desktop, shutdown, run & find), when I click on any other option in the menu nothing happens.
    It´s not a terrible problem because I can access to the same links in other ways but this menu is really usefull.

    The first 2 days after upgrade from win 8.1 this menu worked OK but suddenly stop working. In the middle I installed several programas, uninstal others and update some drivers. But I don´t know when exactly start this behaiviour.

    Does anyone have some idea how to solve this?

    Thanks

    Try running sfc scannow command and see whether it fixes the problem.
    SFC Command - Run in Windows 10

    Try repairing the image with this tutorial:
    DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image
    Then run sfc /scannow at least 3 times.

    Thanks @brummyfan
    problem persist after DISM and SFC as described in the tutorials (first DISM, then 3 times SFC and 1 more time SFC at boot, always restarting at the end of each one).
    Any other suggestion?

    @ShyGuy0504
    can you give some details about your hardware?
    Mine is an ASUS laptop, K52JT
    Processor: Intel i5 M460
    Graphic card: Ati Radeon HD 6370M
    RAM: 4 GB


    can you give more information about programs and drivers installed before this problem starts?
    In my case I detected the problem after installing a new version of ASUS On Screen Display but problem persists if uninstall this and go back to the old version so I assume should be other reason.

    My specs are:
    CPU: i5 750
    GPU: HD 7970 ghz
    RAM: 8GB

    I upgraded from Windows 7 and didn't add any new programs. The only thing I did was update my GPU drivers but the problem was there before I did that. I've looked online and found that some people had the same problem with Windows 8.1. They fixed it by using a program called ShellExView to see which programs added shell extensions and uninstalling those programs. I downloaded it and uninstalled every program like that on my pc but the problem is still there.

    I'm having issues with jump list menus and I have Airdroid installed, see this thread
    Unable to copy file from Excel jump list - Windows 10 Forums
    I'll uninstall Airdroid tonight and test, I'll report back
    Out of interest how did you determine Airdroid was implicated?

    I read something about Airdroid causing some kind of problem in context menu in Windows 8.1 so I decide to try uninstalling.
