    Jump List Items not Opening

    Is anyone having the issue where you open your jump list in File Explorer and then click on something like your Videos or Downloads Folder to have the jump list close like normal, but then nothing open? I also noticed that when I right click on the start button, I can't get any of the options on the menu to launch either. Any help would be great.

    I had this, I lost jump lists and lost right click on task bar items, drove me nuts until google said look in task manager, kill explorer and let it restart. I saw 2 instances of windows explorer running.. killed them..jump lists ok now

    I just tried that, I only have one instance of task manager running, but I went ahead and restarted it anyways. I'm guessing that this may have something to do with the corrupted files that sfc /scannow found and can't replace as well as dism.exe /online /cleanup-image /restore-health returning an error 0x800f081f.

    I have the same problem, on two computers (a laptop upgraded from 8.1, and a desktop upgraded from a clean install of insider beta builds). Only on File Explorer (all other jump lists work fine). Also, in my case, jump-list links to computers including networked computers work fine. So "This PC" and \\someOtherPC both work, but "Videos" and "\\someOtherPC\sharedFolder" both don't work. They dismiss the jump list without actually opening anything. Same goes for "frequent" items.

    So far you're the only other person on the whole internet with the same problem. I reported it as a bug every time I got a new beta build, and haven't seen it reported anywhere else at all.

    Yeah, I talked to Microsoft about this one and they have no idea either. I think it might have something to do with the upgrade. I also tried upgrading Windows 10 to Windows 10 to avoid program loss, and it still didn't correct the issue.

    Oh and clicking on any of the right click menu items when I right click on the start button doesn't do anything either.

    Same issue here, when I click on a item in the file explorer (start menu) jump list..nothing happens.

    This is quite annoying

    I've noticed that upgrading Windows 7 to Windows 10 results in sfc /scannow showing corrupted files that it can't repair. I'm current;y restarting windows via the special boot menu (hold shift while clicking "restart") to see if that repairs it (choose to wipe only the drive that Windows is installed on, otherwise you'll get a blue screen with a boot device access error) and we'll see what happens from that point. I'll keep you all updated.

    I've now noticed that sfc /scannow shows that I have corrupted files even after resetting Windows 10. Seems a little strange that this would happen after a fresh install. A technical support agent made some repair to my Windows Update registry (issue: Service registration is missing or corrupt) and I am once again running an sfc /scannow to see if this fixes it.

    Actually it happens to me too 3 times! I have to reset the whole OS to get it functional. But as I am reinstalling apps, something breaks. I was very careful to install a few apps and create a restore point but no avail. Doing system restore does NOT help. However, the admin account jumplist work so I am at a lost! Any help would be appreciated!
