    Right click start button - some links do not work


    Hi Guys,

    Another issue I see (on a different Win10 machine) is when i right click the start menu the links that are pointed out in red do not work. all other links work fine. It seems the shortcuts are broken but i looked in the user folders and they are all there. clicking the links in the users folder opens the screens but using the shortcut doesn't seem to work. it's very odd.

    This is a Win10 Pro machine.

    Is this a common issue or something, that can be fixed? Any help would be great!

    My winx folder appears to be fine, and the links work using the start menu. I also created another account and that account had the same issue.

    All those links in the menu have always worked for me.

    I just tested them again now, and they still work.

    Sorry, but I can't help you.

    I'm on Win10 Pro Build 10240 RTM and those mentioned links work fine for me. It's a Custom-build computer Upgraded from Win8.1. I just checked my Dell Inspiron 580 Desktop with Win10 Home Upgraded from Win7 w/SP1 and they work fine on it.
