    I don't blame you one bit on that. The reason I didn't try it was I first didn't notice it and then I really didn't want to mess my system up if it didn't work.

    Darn. . .go watch some golf for a few hours, and the things sure change. . .anyway I tried the Shift F-10, and nothing. It really doesn't bother me since I hardy us the "Right Click" on the desktop other then bringing up Personalization, thus no real problem. . .just wondering if there was a work around other then reinstalling. . .

    Hang on, even Shift+F10 is not working now!!??

    There are terrible problems with what has focus (what is, or should be, in the foreground, what responds to mouse. keyboard etc., in Windows 10, all versions since 10240 anyway.
    Yes, I found "focusing" has been a problem in 10 since day 1. This is a major problem for keyboarding in it. I think it's a problem developing for the various peripherals of input. e.g. I found I can scroll-wheel in Edge and it scrolls, but then change to keyboard with using up/down arrows or page up/down does nothing unless I left click on the page to achieve focus, then keyboarding works.

    BTW, right-clicking on the desktop doesn't work for me either, but Shift/F10 does.

    Having other problems with this build, but on the other hand some great improvements.

    Rats! Try Restarting Explorer, bring mouse focus back to the desktop and try it again, without doing or opening anything else.
