  1. cannot right-click on taskbar icons


    Hi there

    I am having an issue with my windows 10 desktop.

    I cannot right-click on my taskbar icons, I can't open the calendar or the sound mixer. I have tried everything on the internet. I noticed this entire issue began after I removed the razer synapse program from my computer. I am desperate to fix this as it's slowing my pc down and I just built it in January.

    Thanks
