    Unhappy 'Open' menu item in Windows 10 not working

    I installed the Windows 10 Creator Update a couple of weeks ago, and now when I use the "Open ..." menu item on most applications, the application stops working and crashes.

    The Office apps seem to work (Word, Excel, ...), but apps like "Notepad" don't work. Neither does Photoshop or Lightroom.

    Has anyone see this problem and knows how to fix?

    Thanks for the help.

    Open menu meaning the Open with context menu item which appears when you right-click on a file?

    If so can you perform a Clean Boot and see if it works?

    I think some addin to your File Explorer may be causing this issue...
