    If you mean the list shows but is unresponsive, then same for me.... was working before the Anniversary Update, now search and run work but the others don't.

    I tried sfc/scannow and DISM repairs but reported everything ok

    Sorry couldn't help myself from saying that

    One of my computers is 8 or more years old and running Win 10 and some things either take forever or don't work at all

    Nothing appears (no menu) when I right click the start button also Win X does not work or show and sub menu. I have tried restarting explorer.exe and I have run sfc /scannow to no avail! Any other suggestions would be welcomed.

    I had this exact problem after I installed one of the insider builds before the AU update came out. Unfortunately I can't fully remember how it was resolved, and it has only ever happened once. I know for a fact a restart didn't fix it. I think I had to revert to my previous build, and the menu worked again. I then wasn't offered the build which had failed, so I just waited for the next one. Are you running an insider build?

    This has also been a problem for me over the last few weeks - left-click on start button works fine but right-click doesn't. Same thing happens with using the keyboard - pressing the Win-key button opens the left-click start menu option, but Win-key plus X does nothing!

    I've tried loads of 'so-called' fixes including 'SFC/Scannow' and also downloading 'ShellExView', from Nirsoft, and disabling all non-Microsoft Context Menu handlers, but they all fail to solve the problem! The strange thing is that this is what happens on my desktop PC, whereas on my Laptop, which I updated to Windows 10 at the same time, including the AU version, both right-click on start menu and Win-key plus X both work fine!

    This is getting to be exasperating - Help would be much appreciated... thank you

    It's disappointing not receive a reply here? Am I really the only one with this problem?

    Have you tried c:\Users\Default\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX (copy the three folders here) c:\Users\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WinX (use them to replace the three folders here) Then ctrl+alt+delete task manager right click Windows explorer and select restart.

    This happened to me last summer when I first upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10. I finally figured out I had a corrupted user profile and nothing could fix that profile. The only thing that worked was to create a new user profile with a different name. The new profile had a working right click menu. I the moved all my files over to the new profile and deleted the old one.
