    Blank Right Click menu's and blank popups after Creators update


    Have tried upgrading to Creators several different ways including just letting it upgrade through windows update and clean install. In every case, I end up with blank screens for right-click options and popups with be blank with button shells and no text. Explorer is blank as well. I am being forced to use an image to restore my computer because roll back doesn't completely work. 1607 works great but 1703 breaks my computer. When I did a clean install on my new SSD drive, the upgrade worked for about two hours before failing. At that point, the only thing on the drive was Windows and Office 2016. Is there something I am missing and failing that, Is there a way to stop the upgrade so I can keep my computer functional?

    :)

    Right Click Options, Windows 10 Creators

    Upgraded to Windows 10 Creators and the right click menus are all blank. When I right click on the start button, I get the window to popup, but there are no selections. If I right click on the Task Bar, I get a blank popup window. Additionally, when I
    did a Shift/Delete on a desktop icon, I got the window that pops up asking if you want to permanently delete the shortcut but the window was blank with the outlines of two blank buttons. I have rolled back to the prior version of windows and am willing to
    try the install again, but is there anything that can be done to get the menu's back?

    Desktop Right-Click Popup Menu gone

    After installing Insider Preview Build 10547, I have lost the ability to Right-click a blank portion on the desktop and to open a popup menu.

    This happens if you right-click the desktop and click View ( or Appearance, my Windows 10 is not English ) on the popup menu that opens, and then uncheck Show desktop items. After that you lose right-click popup menu.

    You can right-click on the Taskbar. You can right-click on the start button. You can right-click any icons on the system tray. But you cannot right-click a blank portion on the desktop. This wasn't so in the previous builds, I believe.

    Now I cannot revert the changes because the right-click popup menu is gone. And I do not know any other place where I can click Show Desktop Items.

    EDIT: I have another desktop with Windows 10 Build 10240. Here I unchecked Show desktop items. But I can still right-click the desktop and popup menu pops up. The following screenshot is from Windows 10 Build 10240.

    Blank Right Click menu's and blank popups after Creators update

    Hi, there are some reports a bit similar to yours, but some of them refer to 3rd party conflicts e.g.
    No text displayed in explorer after Creators Update - Windows 10 Forums

    However, you say you see this after a clean install. It could be related to the particular driver version for your graphics card.

    If you boot to Safe Mode, does all look well?
    If you have Pro, you can defer feature updates (in this case the Creator's build).
    Otherwise, you'd need to disable Windows updates one way or another.

    You mention rollback doesn't work. Could you post a screenshot of Disk Management (with the Anniversary Edition installed)?
    (Use the icon to the left of the video icon above your post).

    Also check your disk- e.g. Hard Disk Sentinel (trial) and post a screenshot.
