    Start button right-click does not work (again)..


    Dear All,

    I presume some of you are familiar with the start button right click failure. I run Windows 2004, version 20175.1000 (pre-release 200717.1349). The failure of the right-click to work on the start button is an issue I've faced a few times.

    I have already visited the famous WinX folder, replaced subfolders Group 1/2/3, and in the past this had cured the problem.

    I have now noticed the issue has returned again, and I am having prior to upgrading to this latest Dev version. I can see the shortcuts inside the subfolders Group 1/2/3, the shortcuts work when clicking directly onto them, but still right-clicking on the start button does nothing.

    Has anyone had a chance for a solution? Previous solutions that date back 5 years suggested the use of a custom little .exe that had done the trick at that time, has anyone come with anything else?

    This is the old thread with the then accepted solution:
    Start Menu button right click menu fails

    Thanks a lot,
    Christos

    :)

  3. Start Button displaying but not working


    The start button was working until there was a forced reboot (power failure). Then left click (normal click) over the start button does absolutely nothing. Right click brings up a menu but "programs" and also "settings" are missing and not included on this list. Search or Task View buttons do not work either with "normal" click. Does anyone have any suggestion or fixes?
    Thank you in advance *Huh

    Start button right-click does not work (again)..

    It does not work this way since the content of group folders were built with some kind of hash algorithm.

    Try to download the latest version of WINX menu editor (Version 3.0): Downloads / Software / Win+X Menu Editor allows you to add or remove Win+X menu items
    Extract and right click to run as Admin.
    Hitelite each group and click "Remove" then click on "Restart Explorer"
    Click on "Restore Defaults". then click on "Restart Explorer" again

    NOTE: Out of curiosity, I did try the steps above to rebuild everything and it works. BTW, I am running Windows 10 2004.
