A couple of days ago my right click on my mouse just stopped working all together. It will not bring up any menu at all. I use it to open pages in a new tab and it's driving me crazy...I can't find any information to help me.

Thank you

a long time ago I had a button crap out on me in my mouse, the actual button stopped working maybe you need a new mouse have you tried it on another computer or tried another mouse?

try this: Right-click Taskbar or windows orb > Properties > click Start Menu tab > choose Customize > Enable the option "Enable Context menus and Dragging and Dropping"

Thank you for taking the time to help me. I tried using a different usb port for my mouse and nothing changed...I don't have another mouse to try. I also can't right click on the start menu either. Is there any other way to "Enable Context menus and Dragging and Dropping"?
