  1. No context menu on desktop icons


    I just upgraded my Win 7 Pro desktop to Windows 10 Professional (32-bit). Minor problems, as usual, when a new system is installed, but a specific one is getting me crazy. When I click on any desktop icon, I do NOT get the traditional context menu, but the whole screen turns to a uniform background (theme color) and then, after half a second, go back to the usual desktop layout. This is really annoying. For example, I cannot empty the trash. Any idea?

    :)

  3. Cannot right click on my Desktop. Icons Missing.

    Click on your desktop. Then press SHIFT+F10 to bring up the context menu on your desktop. Turn "Show desktop icons" back on for now.

    This is a known bug in 10547. You'll want to keep "Show desktop icons" on in this build.
