    Force Context Menu Appearing


    I have this bug on my windows:
    Force Context Menu Appearing [​IMG]

    When I Right+Click on the start orb to open the win+x menu, sometimes the context menu appears at the top, just like the image above.

    Is there anyway to force the context menu appearing at exact position?

    Hi Paul,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft community.

    I suggest you to roll back to the previous version of Windows 10 build and follow the below suggestion provided by SpiritX MS MVP replied on June 7, 2015 and check if it helps.

    Edit the Appearance of the Context Menu

    Well, I just updated to the Fall Update and I saw that the submenu style is just awful. In the previous update it was amazing

    Any idea how to roll back to that exact submenu?

    Force Context Menu Appearing

    Speculation only :
    Are you using the "recommended" resolution ?

    Start button > System > left side, Display > right side, at the bottom, Advanced display settings > Resolution.

    Suggestions only :

    1. Graphic card up to date ? Go to your computer manufacturer, see if you grapgic card driver needs updating.

    2. Run a system file check to look for corrupt files. It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste this.......
    sfc /scannow

    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........

    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    Thanks for answer but is not that, it seems only happens with the old start menu instead of the windows 10 default. Seems to be a bug of the application.

    Still, force the context menu to appear in a fix position can be a temporary workaround, anyway to do it?

    Force Context Menu Appearing

    You lost me.

    What "old start menu " ?
    What " Windows 10 default " ?

    I looked at your screenshot several times. I don't get what you meant.

    I mean, I'm using this software StartIsBack: real start menu for Windows 8 and Windows 10

    That context menu is the one you make appear with right click the start button or win+x, the normal is the context menu appear near the mouse but sometimes is bugged and appear like the screenshot

    Thank you.
    I don't use 3rd party Start Menu program anymore. Used Start10 once. Never StartIsBack.

    Sorry, can't help you.

    Thanks for try!

    Still the question is open! Any registry tweak or something that force context menu in a fixed area
    alesyt0h, Jun 4, 2016
  12. davidhk Win User
    I have no knowledge of that.

    Just for the heck of it.
    Try uninstall StartIsBack > then reinstall.
