  1. Windows 10 - Right click results to Not Responding


    When I right click in certain areas on my computer, I get a Not Responding error. This happens with my mouse and trackpad when I right click, so it's my computer and not mouse. For example:

    Applies to:
    - Desktop folders/icons/files. When my desktop stops responding, it flashes white, refreshes, and it's fine.
    - Any folder or white space in any of my folders

    Doesn't apply to:
    - Browser (Chrome)
    - Desktop empty space (right clicking on my desktop, not any icons)

    Does anyone have a solution for this or know what I can do to find out? I think it might be a 3rd party software but I'm not sure what to do if it is. Any help is appreciated!

    :)

  2. Right click not responding on Windows 10

    Hi Kaleem,

    I realize the inconvenience you are experiencing with Right click function on Windows 10. I will certainly help you.

    To assist you better, please reply to the following questions:

    1. Are you connected external mouse or touchpad on your device?

    2. If it is external mouse, May I know the make and model of the Mouse?

    3. Does this issue persist in specific folder or all folders?

    I suggest you to try the following troubleshooting steps and check if it resolves the issue.

    Step 1: Safe Mode with Networking

    I suggest you to check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode with Networking.

    Safe mode with Networking starts Windows in safe mode and includes the network drivers, services needed to access the Internet or other computers on your network.

    Refer below link to Enable Safe Mode with Networking.

    Start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10


    Note: Please restart the computer to start in normal mode.



    Step 2: Perform Clean Boot



    If the issue does not persists in Safe Mode, then perform a Clean Boot
    to check if any third party application is causing the issue, as Clean Boot helps in eliminating software conflicts.

    To do this, refer below article on how to perform a Clean Boot in Windows.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Important: After clean boot troubleshooting steps, refer to the section "How to reset the computer to start as usual after troubleshooting with clean boot" in the provided link to return your computer to Normal startup mode.

    Please post back with the status of issue and we will be glad to assist you further.
