    Taskbar does not work when clicked

    I want to ask, why the start menu, cortana, WiFi, and the sound in the Windows 10 taskbar can't be clicked (clicked but nothing happens). And how to solve this problem.
    Chronology before the problem occurs:
    before this problem occurred, yesterday night windows did an automatic update. And this afternoon when I wanted to connect an internet connection to zoom, this problem occurred.
    The effort I have put in this time.
    1. Restart the laptop
    2. Restart explorer
    3. Run the System File Checker (sfc / scannow) in powershell admin and find the corrupted windows files.
    4. Still in Powershell admin, I run dism with the command
    DISM / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth
    DISM / Online / Cleanup-Image / RestoreHealth /source:WIM:X:\Sources\Install.wim:1 /LimitAcces.
    5. Updating windows but I can't connect my laptop to the internet for updating due to the above problem.
    6. Restore to the time before Windows performs automatic updates

    If you did this step:

    6. Restore to the time before Windows performs automatic updates

    then it is unlikely the update that caused your problem. When you tried to connect to Zoom, did anything happen out of the ordinary?

    @f14tomcat iam forget, before running the zoom, I opened Osu! But because Osu! kept flickering and didn't work, so I immediately opened the task manager, stopped the task, and For some reason I was forced to turn off the laptop without restarting osu!

    @dalchina it's not right-click that is problematic, but left-click and click on a malfunctioning touchpad on the taskbar

    You first post said nothing about a malfunctioning touchpad.

    Please be clear in your requests so people don't waste time giving answers. Thank you.

    And thank you for your reply.

    Lots of info you need to give to describe your problem accurately then.

    And you've still not given your Windows build. Good luck.

    I'm sorry, I mean "clicked but nothing happens" it's when I left click or click the touchpad on the start menu, cortana and other taskbar icons
