    Annoying issue with right click on the taskbar


    Hello,

    Any idea why this is happening? Computer is brand new (like I have it for 2hours). When I right click on any program/folder that is opened on the taskbar, it shows with a blue background and black text on top, with giant "close" and "pin" icons.

    Any help will be appreciated!

    Try this first and see if it helps.

    (Admin) Command Prompt copy and paste this into it and press enter, let it finish

    sfc /scannow

    Same open command prompt copy and paste this into it and press enter, let it finish take some time

    Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth

    Then reboot and check the issue again.

    Also try this, not sure will help for this

    Good find, glad you solved your issue.
    Update was for those who were going to Windows 10, yes, many people with Windows 8.1 still, had this issue only.

    Again (as I just posted in another related thread) what if you're on Windows 8 Classic.? What causes it here, because that update is not present on my system.
