right click works everywhere but wont open menu from start button

Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have lost the right click function only on the start button in windows 10.  It works and opens menus everywhere else but will not expand the quick access menu from the start button.  I have restarted explorer, replaced winx files, ran numerous commands in powershell...


Command to Restart System:

shutdown /r System File Checker Commands: $env:PATH =$env:PATH+";." DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth sfc /scannow


Command to Re-register Windows Apps:

Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


Commands to Update windows from PowerShell:

Install-Module PSWindowsUpdate Set-ExecutionPolicy -ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate Get-WindowsUpdate Install-WindowsUpdate


I have done everything I know to do. Ive updated windows, updated all drivers, system restore, and  I have even reset the pc from recovery and nothing I do will give me the function back of right clicking the start button to bring up the menu.  Please help

@dylbri -- near the bottom-right of your keyboard, do you have:


1. space bar

2. ALT

3. Windows 4-panes-of-glass

4. another button



Move the mouse-pointer to the bottom-left corner, and tap that #4 button. Does it bring up the "context" menu?


Or, have you set your Windows to "tablet" mode? That will also disable the right-mouse-button-click.
