    Start menu, search, and right clicking taskbar doesn't work


    Hi i notice that overtime, my star menu, search bar, and/or right click taskbar doesn't work unless i restart the computer or restart Windows Explorer in task manager. I have a feeling standing by my pc is causing this.

    Any1 know why this is happening? my computer is updated. I did those DISM commands and sfc /scannow but this still happens.

    :)

    How to launch an installed app outside of Store

    Sorry, Windows Scan doesn't appear under Recently Added Programs. And if I search for "windows scan" with Cortana, the results list contains one entry that just points to the Store and the other entries don't allow a right click at all.
