My Windows start menu sometimes becomes unresponsive. Unresponsive means one of the following things (or):
- The Windows start menu icon doesn't respond to clicks (Windows key on keyboard still works)
- The Windows start menu opens but with a delay of 1-2 seconds
- The Windows start menu opens but all UI elements in it (apps, ..) are unresponsive to clicks
This really annoys me and I was starting to get really mad at Windows until:
I noticed that when I close all Chrome instances the problem instantly goes away and Windows is responsive again.
Tin foil hat on: is Google intentionally sabotaging the Windows experience?
Or (tin foil hat off) is this a somewhat common problem and there is a fix / workaround?
My PC specs are not the source. I have a powerful PC and while this happens neigter CPU nor RAM are busy.
