After recently upgrading to Windows8, I had an issue with items listed in the Win+X menu not functioning. When I would click on the item, nothing would happen. I assumed the update didn’t work correctly and was destined for a rebuild. Since my wife has been very busy with her photography business and other projects, I couldn’t rebuild anytime soon….so I kept trying to fix it.
After many hours of research and trial and error, it turns out the issue with the functionality of the Win+X menu was due to an incompatible Shell Extension made by Memeo. After uninstalling the Shell extension, everything is now working as expected.
