Right click on desktop hangs computer

HP Recommended
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hello. I have seen previously posted question - how to solve the titled problem. When the ridht click is pressed on the desktop, the desktop freezes for a couple of minutes before the context menu shows up. The suggested solution was to remove the the Omen Command Center. However, this didn't solve the problem for me. So I've found the solution that did.

You need to edit the registry. Open regedit, find:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

Inside, remove all the keys except FileSysncEX, New, Sharing and WorkFolders.

Restart the computer and the problem dissapears.
