Can't open a new window or program from the context menu RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using windows 8.1 and I'm having trouble with the context menu. when I right click on items on my taskbar, many of the context menu items don't work. for instance: the menu from the menu for the start button I can't open anything, the only functions that work are shutdown, run, and search. Any option that would open a new window, such as the control panel, simply does not work. I have this problem with other items on the task bar as well, I can't open a new window in chrome from the menu. The only pinned program that seems to work is the file explorer, however it is inconsistent when trying to open folders from the recently launched list.
