  1. Programs or drop down menus not working when right clicking/frozen loading icon


    Hello,


    This seems to be a common problem but so far I haven't found a solution that works & I've already wasted hours I don't have online trying to find the answer.


    When I right-click an icon on the desktop or anything in file explorer, etc, I get an endless blue loading icon that eventually crashes. A lot of programs I have can't or won't open because of it. NOTHING I've seen online seems to help. I've done scans & a ton of things with the task manager that has done absolutely nothing to fix the problem. I've restarted several times.


    According to my system, my Windows 10 is fully up-to-date.


    I work & go to school full time so a quick, easy solution that does not require a third party install would be great (I'm not tech savvy & most of these programs want me to buy something).


    Thank you.

    :)

    Feature suggestion: Add right-click menu

    Suggestion: Please add a Windows 7 Jump-List and/or right-click menu to the GPU-Z icon in the Windows taskbar. Possible menus in it would be "Exit" and "About GPU-Z...".
    Maybe also "Switch to tab 1/Switch to tab 2/Switch to videocard 1/Switch to videocard 2" too.
    Examples of programs that have such menus are ICQ, Skype, AIM.

    NOTE: It seems for a right-click menu, Windows 7 is not needed - it works on WinXP and Vista too.
    But even a Windows 7 Jump-list may be good enough.
    What do you think?

    Programs or drop down menus not working when right clicking/frozen loading icon

    Excel Drop Down Menu Question

    I'm toying around with a project for work. We're trying to make an Excel spreadsheet that has a list of parts that employees would sort of use to build an order form. It's coming along nicely and works fairly well with the touch screen tablet we have, but I had a question. At the moment, when you highlight a cell that has a drop down list of choice, a small box with a down triangle appears in the bottom right. You click that, then the list of items appears. Is there anyway I can make it so that when you click the cell the drop down menu appears? This would make working with the spreadsheet on the tablet many times easier.
