How about a screenshot of a specific failure and are you getting any error messages?

Does nothing?

Do any of the other righ-click functions work. Also, have you tried looking at the the properties of files with different extensions and they all react the same way?

Can you view them from the top ribbon? If so, maybe your context menu is corrupted:
