    Re; a problem with right clicking on any file


    This is on a Gateway laptop NV570P-18U OS Win 10 Home 64 bit. It doesn't mater what file or folder that I right click on. The menu is very slow to come up. And sometimes the blue circle just sits there and goes around and around and that's it. I have researched this problem online about the "context menu" and nothing helps. I am almost to the point of saying the heck with it. Save what needs to be saved to the D hard drive in the external USB case then wipe the C: hard drive partition clean and reinstall the OS and everything else. I am only guessing but this problem started after I downloaded SimCity 4K deluxe from GOG.com. And SimCity 4K deluxe hasn't worked 100% since I downloaded it, it has graphic streak problems in one of the citys. Anyways I though I would post here 1st and see if anyone has some ideas before I wipe the C partition clean and start reinstalling everything.

    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?

    Windows 10 Right click

    Hi Lee,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    I suggest you to run system file checker scan and check the issue.



    Sfc /scannow will inspect all of the important Windows files on your computer, including Windows DLL files. If System File Checker finds an issue with any of these protected files, it will replace it.

    Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Command prompt (Admin).
    • At the Command Prompt, type:
      sfc/scannow
    I also suggest you to update the graphics card drivers/display drivers from manufacturer website and check if it resolves the issue.


    • Open Device Manager.

    • Expand ‘Display Adapter’.

    • Locate the display driver.

    • Right-click on the display card listed and click on ‘Update Driver Software’
    Hope it helps.

    Thanks.
