 have a laptop with Windows 10 on and use a wireless mouse on this and the right click is very very slow.  It works fine on another laptop so i know it's not the mouse.


When i have looked on-line the advice is to change some of the settings with the Registry.  I am a little hesitant to do this and struggling to find an resolve from Microsoft.


Can anybody advise what to do to rectify this.

 Could it be one of those fancy many-button mouse which needs its own drivers installed ?

 Is the Right-Click from touchpad also slow ?

I had the same problem when I right-clicked on a file in explorer the computer would take a long time to do anything and explorer said it wasn't responding. I watched a video  and did the chkdsk c: /f /r /x  and it seems to have fixed it. But it is scary, the computer stays on 11% done for a very long time. I started it in the afternoon and let it run for 2 hrs then went to bed and it was done the next morning, don't know how long it took but more than 2 hrs.

If you want to edit your reg,just be sure to back it up,then you can always restore if you have problems


If you really dont want to edit the reg you could try ShellExView
