    Right click often has blank context menu or partials?


    I'm running Windows 10 x64.. with very little installed outside of Office 2013 and Visual Studio 2015.

    Every once in awhile I run into a situation where my right clicks no longer result in a context menu being visable.. at least mostly.. particularly when you right click the desktop and parts of the start menu/taskbar..

    I'm unsure what might have caused this... wondering if anyone else has run into this..

    I had a similar issue with right click not working, and also the menu issue you reference in your post. Ck out my solution in this thread and see if it may help.

    I think my issue was caused by Command Prompt here as Admin Power tools (from around 2008 i think).. (which would also cause out of memory prompts on right clicking too).. strange though, never had the issue with win 8

    However, this is a great find, shell context editor.. i've gone ahead and downloaded it for future reference if it occurs again..

    Thanks for the link

    Windows 10 :-(

    Me too.


    I'm having the same issue, noticed it for the first time yesterday but it seems to happen all the time. Maybe another thing that changed with a windows update?

    I'm at 5,9 GB memory in use, with 2 GB available. Should be OK you'd think...

    Attaching the screenshot.....

    Shellexview is great- just be careful to hide Microsoft extensions, as disabling these can have unpleasant consequences.

    When diagnosing things you can try a binary chop approach- disable half the others, see what happens, and so on. Conversely enable half disabled.

    You shouldn't need to restart or log off.

    That was an old post in Windows 8 Forum. I updated that post here:

    I have had this problem for a some weeks (see Windows - applications lose captions, ability to respond to mouse clicks, context menus corrupted - Super User). However with the most recent Windows 10 forced-upgrade the problem seems to have resolved itself, although I have just noticed that the Windows-X menu (hold the Windows key down and press the "X" key for a menu of useful stuff) opened with a couple of items missing their caption text. Closing it and reopening it fixed that however. I haven't seen the long skinny context menu with no text since I upgraded a couple of days ago, and I would have expected it to have occurred by now.

    Have you upgraded? My Windows version reports as Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10586]

    I had this problem too(with contextmenus of trayicons). What fixed it for me is setting the text-scale for both of my monitors to the same value.
    Start -> Settings -> System -> Display -> Change the size of text...
