Can't Right Click Taskbar Icons

Feb 3, 2016

I can't right click taskbar apps, left click works as it should but not the right click. Also left clicking start button won't open start menu, right click works on this one as it works on other system icons (volume, network, clock and notification) but not the left click. Another weird thing is that always when i boot up, onedrive instantly crashes, i dont know if this is relevant. I tried rebuilding search index and "sfc /scannow" as i tried this powershell command with no luck.

Code:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"}

Also this happened after a power shortage.

How To Minimize Icons That Appear When Right Click Any Taskbar

Jan 11, 2016

I have pinned MS Word and Excel to my taskbar and when I right click either icon, the last used files are listed. On Win 7 there was a way of increasing the number of files showing on this list, if I remember well. Since I have 5 pinned files on top of the list, there is not much space left for showing other files unless I find a way of minimizing the icons on the list.

Unable To Right Click On Icons Windows Taskbar

Nov 18, 2015

For some reason, Windows 10 taskbar is behaving in an odd fashion. I am unable to right click on the icons on the taskbar. I am able to launch the application, sure, such as file explorer etc., with the left click, but right clicking on any icon has no effect.

On the other hand, I am not able to left click on any of the icons in the system tray, but I am able to use the right click to bring up the menu. The same goes for the Start button (Windows button).

So in essence, right click on the icons in the taskbar does not work, and the left click on icons in the system tray, does not work. The opposite action on both, works...

I have restarted the system, and restarted the Windows explorer process as well, to no avail.

Taskbar Icons Unresponsive To Left Click Of Mouse

Jan 13, 2016

After the 12Jan2016 Windows 10 Home updates some taskbar icons became unresponsive to a left click of the mouse. Examples are the leftmost for access to all applications, the right most to access the calendar, the next most rightmost to access notifications. Right click of the mouse on the icons works as expected.

Taskbar Right-click Does Not Work - Search In Taskbar Does Not Open

Sep 24, 2015

A few days ago, after an automatic Windows 10 update on my desktop computer, I found that: right clicking icons on the taskbar does nothing - none of the options appear; the start button on the left of the taskbar only works by right-clicking and accessing the old Windows 8 style options; the search icon on the taskbar does nothing; the Windows 10 calculator has disappeared - when I press the calculator key on my keyboard a message appears saying "You'll need a new app to open this calculator". It seems to have been deleted from the computer.

Until these things happened Windows 10 was working well.

Desktop Icons Vanished - Cannot Right Click

Feb 23, 2016

As of today without my apparent intervention:

1. Desktop icons have vanished (cannot right click on desktop)
2. Taskbar icons have vanished (got them back as right-click works on taskbar)
3. Cannot minimise window (browser, Outlook etc)

Is this an 'update' or have I carelessly altered something?

Can't Right Click Taskbar Or Use Cortana / Start

Oct 2, 2015

So I've tried so many things, There's another post on here where you put a command in powershell and that doesn't seem to be working. Some people say their anti-virus software caused the issue and i uninstalled mine and still nothing! I'll try everything that's commented even if I've done it before.

I believe I got the message saying start menu and cortana aren't working and that they'll work on startup. I dont remember getting it but after reading about an issue where someone mentioned it I vaguely remember just ignoring it. If you need any specs, I'll provide them. I keep trying to ignore this issue but would really like to try and fix it.

Can't Open Folders Via Right Click Of Taskbar

Aug 9, 2015

I just got Windows 10 installed, and the first problem I'm having is that I can't get the folders in my taskbar to open either by regular click, or by right click and selecting "Open". The exception is File Explorer which works by default clicking the folder icon, or by right clicking the taskbar icon and selecting it either by click or right-click-open. The rest of the folders, ones I pinned and ones that are there as frequent folders, just sit there and do nothing when clicked on. I tried a restart, turned off a lot of the apps that start with my computer, but still not opening files. It's slowing down my work to have to go through the file explorer each time.

I think this is related to tiles disappearing on the start menu. It feels like a graphic bug.

I tried the powershell command, but it did not work. Is there any quick fixes to this? I'm not ever good with OS related problems!Also, I can't use cortana, so I am guessing this is definitely an OS related problem.

Browser/Email :: Taskbar Middle-click Not Working For Firefox

Sep 11, 2015

I upgraded to Windows 10 a little while ago, and while it has mostly been smooth sailing I have encountered a small glitch.

Middle-clicking on things in the taskbar normally opens a new instance on the corresponding application. This feature works perfectly for everything but Firefox.

I am not sure if it is a setting within Firefox or Windows that is blocking this behavior, or if it is a bug.

I have discovered two workarounds.

1) Open a new Firefox window using the shortcut in the Start Screen.
2) Drag a tab away to create a new window.

Drivers/Hardware :: Cannot Click On Icons In Start Menu Or Some Windows Apps

Oct 24, 2015

my mouse works in every way except inside the start menu. I've also noticed that I can't click on anything after I hit Ctrl + Alt + Del, I had to use the keyboard to open the task manager earlier, but when I got the task manager open, it worked fine. Also, the start menu icons recognize that I am mousing over them - the borders highlight, the mouseover dialog pops up if relevant, but clicking on anything doesn't work.

I am using the Etekcity Scroll Alpha gaming mouse. It's a wired USB mouse.

I ran some commands in the command prompt earlier - "sfc /scannow", something ending in "/restorehealth", and an extremely long PowerShell command. I wish I could be more specific but I can't find the commands again.

I tried looking for updated drivers, everything appears to be up to date. I also ran across a suggestion to update the chipset software, but I can't find anything at all released for Windows 10 and when I ran their utility to find the driver for you, it seemed to confirm that.

I upgraded from Windows 10 a few days ago and until I woke up this morning and woke up my PC from Sleep mode, the start menu worked perfectly. I tried restarting the PC after running the commands I mentioned earlier, problem persisted.

Windows Start Button On Taskbar Doesn't Work With Left-click

Jan 15, 2016

I have four computers running Win10. On two of them the windows "Start" button on the task bar doesn't work. So I can't get to Settings or Apps. I can right click on the Start button and get the "right-click menu". All of the other task bar buttons work.

What's going on with this? It used to work. For a while it didn't work on my laptop, now that is working but on two other desktop computers it doesn't work. All computers have same Win10 version and latest updates (although hardware differs some between them).

Can I add the "Settings" and "All Apps" shortcut I would normally get left-clicking on the Start button to the Start button's "right-click menu"?

Icons Used To Be On Taskbar

Dec 24, 2015

HP Envy desktop came with Windows 10 Home already loaded. Set it up with my program shorcut icons in the taskbar. Everything working just fine for days, and then all of a sudden (well maybe not as I had just installed updates from MS) the taskbar no longer shows those icons and the Windows Start/Search/taskview icons on the left and the HP Support/Notification icons on the right show but all are inactive.

Select Which Icons Appear On Taskbar?

Feb 10, 2016

I have a question, under "Start Menu -> Settings -> Notifications & actions -> Select icons which appear on the taskbar, how does one do maintenance on the list so it only shows items that are currently installed as it seems uninstalled items are still showing up on the list." However the answer has been tried but did not solve it for me. I still have uninstalled app icons showing up. I have deleted "iconstreams", there is no "pasticonstreams" to delete, I have ran registry cleaner, disk clean up, registry search for the apps, c: drive search for left overs etc etc etc to no avail. The icons or app shortcuts must be hiding

Taskbar Icons Get Corrupted?

Jan 10, 2016

I'm finding that my clean install of W10/64 gets corrupted "Store" and "Edge" taskbar icons if it's been running for any length of time or if I've been gaming. I haven't tried to troubleshoot or isolate the cause. I've only taken note of the problem. Shrug.

A reboot cleans them up.

Edge has white behind the "e". Store is just a white square. My other taskbar icons are good. See the pic.

Desktop Taskbar Icons All Gone?

Feb 10, 2016

I have recently done an update. Now, my computer turns on fine. However the only taskbar icons I have from the extreme left is the windows 'start' image, then the cortana circle then the taskview rectangle.

From the extreme right I have the usual show desktop sliver, then a blank gap of around an inch where wifi / volume / clock should be then a rectangular speech bubble 'No new notifications' then the up arrow - which only shows a single grey square 'ELAN pointing device'.

That's it. There were several quick icons there prior. Edge, MFF, folders, ASUS update, Chrome etc. All gone.

Also, I can't actually access anything from the start window icon. Clicking it does nothing. When I hover / click it it turns red, but that's it.

All my usual desktop icons are there. I can use them but can't minimise anything. If I do minimise anything it vanishes. I can open it again via the task manager as they are still running but that's it.

The ONLY way to shut down my computer is to go to the ctrl + alt + del to the red screen and use the icons in the bottom right hand corner. I can sometimes right click on the start windows icon and it will pop up a black menu and one of the options is power / sleep / shutdown etc.
