Cannot click anything, right-click is not working
The problem with right-click not working on desktop most often does not mean anything serious for Windows 10 OS. Let's see how to get rid of it!
The simplest ways to deal with right-click not working issue:
Restart the laptop or computer. Here, we are talking about a reboot, not a shutdown.
Scan your system for viruses and malware. Antivirus must be checked and updated - these are prerequisites.
Clean your computer from unnecessary and temporary files; delete junk mail.
Connect the mouse to another device. This way, you check if the right-click works. If you are using a wireless mouse, try using new batteries.
Run the hardware troubleshooter:
- In the search box, enter "hardware and devices" and click “OK”.
- Select the line Troubleshooter and click “Next”.
- After scanning, you will see a list of detected hardware and device problems.
If there is a Mouse in the list, select it and click the "Next" button. The fix wizard will try to fix the error.
If the previous methods prove to be ineffective, you can try additional solutions:
Recover damaged important system files using the third-party DiskInternals Partition Recovery application. This will be most convenient for you, as the recovery result is 100%.
Exit tablet mode (right-click never works in this mode). This can be done by clicking on “Windows + A” and selecting “Support Center”. Here, you will find tablet mode, which needs to be disabled.
Restart Windows Explorer using the Task Manager. In the “Processes” tab, select “Windows Explorer” and click its “Restart” button.
Update the device driver. In Device Manager, locate and expand the Mice and other pointing devices option. Select Mouse and click “Update Driver ...”. Restart your computer and try again to check if the “can’t right-click on desktop” problem persists.
