    A reinstall of Insider Preview.
    If I click on "Start", scroll to a program, Outlook, for example, when I right click the Start menu disappears.Happens with any Program, App, that I click on.
    There's sort of a 1 second delay before its gone.

    Ran an sfc /scannow and found nothing. Only AV is Defender. Haven't installed anything yet except Office 365.

    Windows 10 Problems with disappearing menu items

    To everybody,

    I had this splendid idea some months ago to switch to Windows 10 with one of my laptops. Since then my problems started concerning that laptop

    • First, the Windows tiles disappeared from the bottom menu. However, this was not a great loss, since I was able to select, whatever I needed, from the desktop.
    • Then the desktop disappeared, i.e. it is still there but it is immediately covered by the desktop background
    • After that, several other items disappeared from various possibilities of selection. For exampleÖ
      • I cannot select the network anymore. Clicking on the network Icon on the right hand side of the screen I only receive the information on what network I am attached to and whether it has Internet access. No other selection is available.
      • While clicking on the date and time stamp at the right corner of the screen, you normally receive a calendar where you may pick the date from. I only receive the date.
      • Today my language selection for the keyboard disappeared. So I cannot even select the right keyboard configuration.
    I have checked the various entries on the windows menu but there was no such item that would help me. Maybe somebody might assist me in solving my problems before installing a previous version of Windows again. By the way I am using an ASUS computer.

    Thanks

    Fritz

    I tried the .27b3 and encountered some problems.
    • Default profile comes up 0.00 / 0.00

    In the setup menu the following items appear:
    • Overclocking
    • Artifact scanning
    • Temperature monitoring
    • Gamma control
    • Startup
    • 3D-detection
    • Driver tweeks
    • Miscellaneous
    I'm running XP SP2 running NVIDIA 169.21 drivers.

    The device details are displayed correctly now.

    Add or Remove Start Context menu items

    Nyima,

    I was not asking about adding and removing regular app items to the start menu, but rather adding or removing items from the Context Menu (Win+X). Specifically, I would like to add the Devices and Printers item to the list.

    Thank you for the response.
