    Strange right click issue on Windows 10


    Hello everyone,

    I hope somebody will be able to help me with this because this is really making my work on my laptop very very difficult.

    So I have this strange issue where every time I try to right click on a file or on a blank space inside a folder to create a new folder for example, it freezes (in case of a folder goes to "Not responding") and then blinks and nothing happens.

    The right click only works properly when I try to right click on my desktop or on a folder that is on my desktop, in every other case I am experiencing this issue.

    I have tried to follow instructions in these videos - Slow Right click on Windows 10 Fix - YouTube
    - How to fix windows 8.1 and 10 right click loading problem - YouTube

    But neither fixed the issue.

    Maybe it is because my right click is not just slow, it never loads and goes to "Not responding" mode immediately.

    I have also tried to create a new folder inside a folder by clicking on the icon in the top left but got the same results.

    Also in case of the first video, I have noticed I do not have the folder "New" under Context MenuHandlers in the regedit if that means anything.

    IŽd be glad for any help I can get,

    thanks and have a great day!

    Try this to see if it helps. It's for Windows 8 but will be the same for 10:

    Hey there!

    I forgot to mention that sometimes after IŽd turn my pc off and then on again, the issue would not appear immediately but would start occuring after some time.

    After I tried the solutions I described above I restarted my pc and the issue appeared to be gone until today.

    I have already tried the Shellex view thing but I had to enable Nvidia Shell extension in order to be able to access my graphics settings.

    In the past, NVIDIA shell extension is the one that caused the trouble. You don't need to have it display on the taskbar or from context menu. You can always access the Ndivia Control via control panel: Win+X ->Control->Ndivia Control Panel

    NOTE:
    If you read some of the posts in that thread, you'll find out quite a few people having the same problem with NVIDIA Extension
