    Windows 10 becomes partially unresponsive (recently)


    Hello all,

    Ive frequented the forums before in search of help for my friends, but now it is I that needs assistance. Very recently Windows 10 has been doing some strange things. WAS running version 1803 and windows that were open would become unresponsive, couldnt exit out, minimize etc, mouse cursor moves around fine and selection boxes would highlight but I cant left click on anything. Then other times if i had multiple windows open, top window would become unresponsive and windows underneath i could close out. Other times task bar will not respond, nor start menu... after waiting a period of time it would resume as normal, others it wouldnt. This happens whether on desktop, or in a browser etc....So i reinstalled windows last night and did a fresh install, deleted partitions and it started doing it again before any drivers were installed, its less prevalent and i continued installing everything and ran (mem test, disc check etc) all with no errors, even did the scannow and nothing.... Im lost as to what could be the issue???

    Sorry so long winded

    :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file1

    Remove-ItemProperty -Path "Registry::HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
    \Applets\Paint\Recent File List" -name file9
    ...

    you get the idea. ( too lazy to put it in a for loop and test it.

    or just open regedit and remove all the fileX from that key.
