    Excuse me but I'm not clear on what you are doing. Are you right clicking an icon or the blank space. For me the icon brings up a menu that includes "run as an administrator," the other does nothing.

    Eisa,

    Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    This used to happen to me when I deleted the wrong files from AppData/Local/Microsoft and also from AppData/Roaming. But the problem solved itself after some boots. I see the only way is to backup your files and create a new user in windows. BTW Im using 10.0 Home 10240

    Suggestions :

    1. Do a system restore. Pick a date when you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
    System Restore Windows 10

    2. Run a Repair Install
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    If you find the tutorial a bit complex, please post back. I can give you a more simplified method.
    But use the forum's tutorial first.
