    Start Menu Stays Open When App is Run as Administrator


    I noticed this in version 1909 and it continued into 2004. When I right-click on an app in Start (command prompt, for example) to run it as administrator, the app comes up but the Start Menu does not close. When I run the same app by left-clicking on it, the Start Menu immediately closes as soon as the app comes up on the screen.

    I've run the appropriate SFC and DISM commands and they don't find any errors. Any suggestions as to how I can fix this without a Windows refresh/reinstall?

    :)

    I'd upvote it, but I just don't have the issue, Squibbon. Then again, I seem to be the only one whose AMD computer wouldn't update to Build 20175. Sigh . . . [/quote] L: My Computer[/i] You need to have JavaScript enabled so that you can use this ... Computer Type: PC/Desktop

    Start Menu Stays Open When App is Run as Administrator

    Hi, if you create a new user for test purposes and log in as that user, does the same thing happen?
    I don't recall seeing a similar report, although there may have been one.

    Possible workaround:

    Start Menu Stays Open When App is Run as Administrator [​IMG]


    I found that a lot quicker than trying to navigate through Win 10's start menu.
    (And using Open Shell is easier than that too).

    FWIW this doesn't happen on my 1903.
