Ever since the beginning of this week, I have been unable to right click anything in the start menu. If I uninstall classic shell, everything works fine, it only happens when classic shell is installed. Any ideas?

Conspiracy theory.
MS wants to sabotage Classic Shell?

I'm having a number of little problems with each new Win 10 update.
They still don't work even with Classic Shell not running.
Wait, I got taskbar action center working again, but not calendar.

I don't have your issue though.


The way I see it, MS is doing a very crappy way of cutting out parts of operating system and not testing for every action that comes from that. We are the guinea pigs on an unstable system. I'm just going along for the ride. :)
If I had to use comupter for a business, I would definitely use Win 8.1 for safety.

I may have to post this elsewhere, but as yet this is the only related post I have seen.

I have been using Classic Shell with great satisfaction since switching from 7 to Windows 8 some years back. I now run four systems with Windows 10 Pro and all use Classic Shell.

One system however has an issue that I seem unable to resolve, following updating it from Windows 7 Ultimate (without Classic Shell) to Windows 10 Pro. I am unable to determine if this issue is related to Classic Shell, but it does appear to be.

Right clicking any pinned item on the taskbar produces odd results. The items's jump list pops up but as soon as I move the mouse over it, it straight away disappears making it impossible use. It is possible get around this by holding the Alt key which right clicking the taskbar - the jump list stays in place so that any link within can be clicked. Sometimes right clicking does not function at all and the only way to resolve this is either by a system restore or restoring from a full image backup.

I have tried adjusting the settings available within Classic Shell but none resolve this.

Disabling Classic Shell produces stranger results - the Windows Start menu does not function at all and neither do the taskbar pinned items.

Uninstalling Classic Shell leaves only an unusable start menu. Reinstalling does not resolve the issue.

Re-registering C:\WINDOWS\system32\StartMenuHelper32.dll using an admin command prompt re-registers the dll but changes nothing.

Attempting to re-register ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll the same way produces the error:
"The module 'C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll' was loaded but the entry-point DllInstall was not found. Make sure that 'C:\Program Files\Classic Shell\ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll' is a valid DLL or OCX file and try again."

Can anyone possibly shed on helpful light on this?

Since uninstalling Classic Shell doesn't solve your problem, it is very likely something got messed up in Windows itself.
You need to register StartMenuHelper64.dll if you are using 64-bit Windows.
ClassicStartMenuDLL.dll is not a COM DLL, so it doesn't need registration.
