    I just did a reinstall of windows, and I am unable to do anything on Windows Explorer except for interacting with the taskbar. Restarting my pc allows to hover over the icons, but the moment I click on one of them, it freezes. Any suggestions on fixing this?

    :)

    File Explorer crashes after Right Click in Desktop


    Download: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows
    NOTE: download version 1.97 or later, else Restart Explorer won't work in step 4


    1. This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator
    2. From the menu, click on Options then click on Filter by Extension Type and select Context Menu. Also put check marks as shown

    3. Click on the screen, Hold down CTRL Key+A to select all then click on the red button on top left corner to disable all.
    4. Click on the Options again and select Restart Explorer
    5. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fixes your problem. If it does then start to enable one by one and repeat step 4 until the problem occurs again, that's the offending extension.

    Nothing Happens When You Right-Click the Desktop in windows 10

    Just upgraded to windows 10 pro.

    Right clicking on desktop causes the mouse pointer to turn to circle and nothing happens, unable to click on any icons on desktop. Restarting helps until you right click on desktop again.

    Anyone else come across this?
