    Yeah, I did but unfortunately it did not help, basically it did not react to Shift + F10 or the dedicated local menu keyboard button, I dont know what the exact name of this button:

    Hi there, RamboJunior. Welcome to the forum.

    Having problems seeing some picture attachments on the forum today, but if it's the key I think you're referring to it is indeed called the Application key aka Menu key used for various menus. That's the key I always had known to use and continues to work on the desktop when focused. Shift/F10 is something new to me.

    It's fine to put the icons back on view, if you want to see them cluttering your desktop.

    I like to see my theme picture desktops.

    I don't like wasting time looking for one icon out of many.

    I also like to avoid RSI through too many mouse clicks.

    I have hidden desktop Icons since Windows 7, accessing the desktop icon shortcuts and the other desktop contents via the desktop toolbar, saving time to load the desktop, and only having to click once to open the desktop toolbar menu, drilling down thru any of the various path options by moving the pointer and clicking once again to open any file on my machine if I wish.

    I can learn to use shift F10 instead of right clicking, but even the shift F10 does not work consistently. Why do I have 2 (or 3) buttons on my mouse, if the operating system is not going to use them?

    Or is the tabletization of Windows going to result in the use of single button mice like the fruit people use?

    I have given up attempting to get the right mouse click to work,even attempting to use Control F-10 is just fruitless, hence if there is a reason to use the mouse on the desktop I fine other ways to access what I need. . .hopefully Microsoft will either put out a patch or fix it in the next upgrade release. . .

    The Shift-F10 trick worked for me on my Surface 3. I had disabled the icons through the context menu and had no access to either desktop icons or the right click functions. Rebooting and then using Shift-F10 with the desktop in view (note: click on it to make sure it has the focus) caused the normal Desktop context menu to appear in the upper left corner of the screen and I was then able to navigate to "View/Show Desktop Icons" submenu option to restore normal function.

    Hi, Lee. It's Shift/F10 keys, not Ctrl. See if that works for you.

    I think it's a bug, for right mouse click is the same as touch and hold, yes? Does someone have a touch screen so to experiment to test. If not, is it a swipe from left action?

    Solution with keyboard


    Windows 10 definitely has a focus problem. I found a solution by which right click on desktop works every single time you try it but it works with your keyboard only.

    Always first press the keys windows key+d and then shift key+F10

    This gives the right click context menu on the desktop everytime even if you have selected to hide the desktop icons.
