I have a PC running Windows 10, latest updates, where when you right click on the Start Menu, all of the menu items less the ones going to the Settings applet do nothing. Such as:
- Event Viewer
- Device Management
- Disk Management
- Computer Management
- Windows PowerShell
- Windows PowerShell (Admin)
Apps and Features, Power Options, System, and Network Connections work fine.
The non-functioning applets, Event Viewer, work fine, such as starting from the Run dialog or my favorite typing in the taskbar search box.
I did try
sfc /scannow and in the past other recommended system file restoration utilities. We even tried an upgrade, but the problem persists.
I ran the DISM command previously, just I forgot the name and syntax offhand. I ran the dual along with a restart of the computer again to the same issue. No change.
Here is the test:
