    No right click options on start screen


    If I right click on any tile shortcut etc, I have no options for pin unpin runas uninstall whatever. Just a check mark. I'm almost certain it is a registry problem. I just do not know where to look. I had a problem with the metro file explorer not working and fixed it with a reg file for homegroup. However did not fix this problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Hello tsukasa, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Please post a screenshot showing your Start screen when you right click on a tile to select (check) it to see what the issue may be.

    Have you tried WSReset.exe in an elevated command prompt ?

    Wsreset Same issue. Tried re-registering the store immersive control panel and all that in powershell. No joy. It's funny albeit still frustrating because every other partof the interface still works. I can install apps in the store, the charms bar works, the app switcher works, but I like my right click options.

    I hope so. I also tried sfc /scannow no errors were found. I tried the dism options to scanhealth and restore. No corruption. I'm lovin this problem that can't be pinpointed.

    Do you have an old restore point to go back to before the problem started ?
