Right Click This PC > Manage - Does NOT Work RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hi,

    As screenshot shows, clicking on Manage do nothing for me!

    Maybe it will be fixed in the next decade, when Win10 shifts from Alpha to Beta state!!!

  • Just a suggestion :

    Run a system file check to look for corrupt files.

    It will try to do repair if any found.

    Right click at Start button > click Command Prompt (Admin) > at the flashing prompt, copy/paste
    sfc /scannow
    > press Enter.
    It will take quite sometime.
    When finished, it will give you one of the 3 reports...............(paraphrasing)
    1. No integrity violation.
    2. Found corrupt files and repair successful.
    3. Found corrupt files but unable to repair.

    If the report is #1, your solution lies elsewhere.
    If the report is #2, check if your problems have been resolved.
    If the report is #3, use this method................
    In the same Command Prompt (Admin) windows, copy and paste this command...........
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth
    > press Enter.
    Again it will take some time.
    When finished, it will give you a report.

    If it says " Operation successful", check if the problem is gone.

    If it says " Source files could not be found", please post back.

  • No "Command Prompt" on Start button.

    Old post Windows has moved on and shows PowerShell now. Perhaps post a new thread for your issue?

    Search start for command right click Command Prompt and Run as administrator then follow the instructions.

  • Try Start, Windows System, Command Prompt.

  • I tried many different solutions (including the registry hacks & ShellExView ) to try and fix this issue but none of them worked for me. After some research on my own system I found a simple fix for this issue that requires no registry editing. This may or may not help you, but its worth a try because it sorted out my problem when nothing else would.

    In my case this "Manage- right click problem" had nothing to do with the context menu and was caused by the Computer Management snap-in not being loaded into the system. When you right click Manage, it seems that Windows 10 sometimes doesn't load the snap-in & nothing happens. This happened to me on a fresh untouched install of Windows 10 pro (vs-1803).

    Why? well I guess Modern coding may be a bit sloppy these days and because of this win 10 seems to get a bit forgetful & lazy.

    Try typing this into the Run command: compmgmt.msc & in a few seconds it will load the snap-in into windows & open it. It will bring up a message that says "Loading Snap-in"

    Now when you go to "This PC & try right click- Manage" it should work from now on.

    Before I tried this I could always get to Computer Management from the Admin Tools in control panel, but the right click Manage from "This PC" would never work until the snap-in was properly loaded using the run command.

  • For me it opens the Computer Management snap-in quite happily.

    You can, also, reach this by > WinX or Rt Clk Win logo & click on Computer Management

  • If this is something new do a System Restore to a date before the issue appeared.

    If that doesn't help, can do a Reset/Repair keeping all personal data intact. (Will have to reload any User installed software)

    If, still, unchanged, then, last resort, re-install.

    Also, recommend running sfc /scannow before getting too carried away w/ anything else.

    Also, can check Event Viewer & Reliability Monitor for any helpful insightful info.

    NB: The above stuff can all be done from w/in the OS before the MCT would (need) come into play.
