    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

    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...

    This does not work for me.

    Both are already set to the default of 100% (recommended)
