    Right-Click Options Keep Disappearing


    When I use the "Search the Web and Windows Box," and I search for an, let's say, World of Warcraft, and I right-click it to pull up the options, they always disappear in a second. I want to make a desktop icon, and I can't do that because I can't click "open file location."

    By following his method, you can create a desktop shortcut of anything installed in your computer. I am siting an example using "Cortana" app here:

    1. Right Click on the Start Menu, choose "RUN".

    2. Type Shell:AppsFolder in the RUN box, Click "OK".

    3. Right Click on Cortana in the 'Applications' folder and "Create Shortcut".

    It does fulfill my purpose, and thank you, but I still wonder why I can't just search for an app, right-click it, and use the options. That's a basic functionality.

    That is an unknown behavior to me, mate.

    Can you do it form the start menu? Is right clicking works there?
    Start > All Apps > Right click on the desired item > More > Open File Location?

    No, I can't. That's the problem. When I right-click on the item in the start menu, the options show up for a second before disappearing. It may not be the biggest deal now, but I might need it in the future.

    Run SFC /SCANNOW Command: SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums
    Run DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image: DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums

    If the issue is originating from the part of the Operating System itself, these two are supposed to recover it.

    Sorry, If I sound dumb, but all those steps are confusing. Could you condense those and say them more clearly please?

    OK, no problem.

    For both of the commands, you need Elevated Command Prompt. To open it, right click on the start button and choose 'Command Prompt (Admin)' ..... like this ....

    Now a Command prompt is open with C:\Windows\system32>
    Copy and paste SFC /scannow after that '>' and hit enter. Let it complete 100%.
    It may ask for a reboot. So please reboot your computer.
    Open another elevated command prompt once again, with C:\Windows\system32> open.
    Copy and paste Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth and hit enter. Let it complete 100%.

    Let us know the results.

    Sorry, I couldn't get back to you, but here are the results. When I did SFC/scannow, it did the scan, and it didn't find a problem. When I did ​Dism/Online/Cleanup-Image/RestoreHealth, it did nothing. I still have the problem.
