    Did you ever get a resolution to this issue that didn't involve a factory reset? I noticed yesterday that when I right click on any installed application under Start/Apps and press the right mouse key the only option available to me is "Pin to Start". I also have noted that if you search for an app like CMD or PowerShell in the search dialog box if you right click on the found application the only option you have there is "Pin to Start". As Foreign Frisian suggested there are other means to perform a needed operation other than from the right mouse menu but for me, it comes down to a question of how stable is my Windows 10 system and are there other issues lurking under the hood. Right now my system seems to be working just fine other than this issue and I would really like avoid a reset. Let me know if you resolved this issue.
    As a matter of fact, this issue was resolved by changing a registry key; not by anything provided in this topic. Your issue is clearly different than the one in this topic, and I will kindly ask you to read titles/OPs more carefully before replying. I would also advise you create a new topic on your issue and someone will try and help you out within a few hours after you post the issue.

    For some reason, right clicking the apps on the start menu doesn't show an uninstall option....
    What caught my eye was the statement you made about the uninstall option not being available on the start menu and this is the problem I'm trying to resolve. Based on the above, I assumed that we had a common problem. Also note that a simple statement would have been sufficient to let me and everyone else know that these were not the same issues. Many times people that do have an issue that gets resolved never post what they did or how it was fixed. Even though our issues apparently are not the same it would have been nice if you would have told other forum members what registry changes fixed your issue in case someone does have the same issue as you had. Have a nice day.

    This is the same issue I am having. Unbelievably frustrating.

    I had made a post:

    Some programs are not clickable in search results. - Windows 10 Forums


    My start menu is not right clickable either. I have done the reinstall upgrade thing where it keeps your applications. Didn't fix anything.
