  1. Shortcuts not working


    I'm trying to troubleshoot BSOD problem by doing a Clean Install so I went to msconfig & closed Windows Services to check on software conflicts. But now shortcuts on my desktop or in emails I receive don't work (respond). Is there a Windows Service I can turn back on to resolve this problem? Thank you.


    Win 10 Pro 64 bit, 1909 18363.836

    I would suggest you to try the following steps and check if that helps.

    • Go to the folder C:\Windows\System32 and sort by file type.
    • Look for the screensaver file type (.scr).
    • Find the file scrnsave.scr(you can choose any of the screensavers).
    • Right click and select send to>desktop (create shortcut). The shortcut on my attachment, but when i click on it my screen goes off and on and nothing else.Shortcuts not working :)
