    @ Neneka:
    Try hitting the 'Space Bar' on the All Apps screen.

    The absence of the right click context menu seems to be a glitch that has been surfacing recently. Not sure if MS has a hotfix out for it yet. The Spacebar thing is just an alternative for now. Hope it helped.

    If you have Windowblinds 8 then you can have this problem. Just download the latest version (v8.04) which fixes this problem.
