    Windows 8 HELP, bottom right corner menu not working?

    About two weeks ago when I right-clicked in the bottom-left corner there would be a menu that would pop up. Now it just moves my mouse a little bit and dosent do anything.

    This menu was really useful...It held things like My Computer, Run, Command Prompt ect.

    O and P.S, I updated to the windows 8.1 preview but it was working when I did that. about a week after I got the preview it did this

    Windows 8 Pro with Media Center/Windows 7

    Hit Windows Key + X to get the same thing. They changed how it works a little in 8.1.

    If you install "Classic Shell" it will put a usable Start Menu back in over the useless "Start Button" - You can also use Stardock Start8 for the same thing but it's 5 bucks.

Moving pointer to left corner not working.
Hi all, When you move your pointer to a left corner you should get either the start page or your open tasks/apps. But it's only working occasionally on my desktop. Is this a known problem, just my computer or just me being stupid? :confused:
