    Start Screen Doesnt show right click option on Windows 8.1


    Anyone got the idea on how do I solve this problem? When I right-click on any tiles it doesnt show the right click option like to change the tiles size, remove the tiles and such.. It just show the "tick icon" on it but no menu option.

    Switch to default theme. Non-official themes which aren't updated yet show this issue.

    Again, disable any unofficial customizations before updating an OS, otherwise it may cause huge issues. They're unofficial for a reason.
