Question

Right Clicking on Desktop

When I right click on my desktop I get the spinning loading wheel for about a minute, then the screen flashes once and the mouse goes back to normal (but the box doesn't open). While the wheel is spinning I cant interact with anything on the desktop and its rather annoying, and with my bad memory every time I go to make a folder I freeze my desktop. I've tried searching forums, restarting my PC and even a system reset and nothing has worked. Any help would be appreciated! (All I have installed manually on my PC is steam and discord, and I doubt its caused by them)

System reset? What is that?

Context menu

The issue isn't too much stuff in the context menu, its that the context menu doesn't open, it simply gives the loading symbol for a minute then goes back to normal, still not presenting a context menu

Did not write there is too much stuff.

I did write that it failed. The most common reason is a failing item. I can't tell you which item it is. In fact, I've never guessed which in decades. This is why you have to go over the items and see what you think it is.
