On my pc with Windows 10 I cannot now access the properties of the drives or folders, but can still access the properties of files.
When I right-click on a drive I get the message: "The properties for this item are not available".
When I right-click on a folder the properties pop-up comes up but the only tabs on it are "General" and "Previous Versions".
This happens on both the C drive and other drives. In addition, inside a folder the right-click context menu is abnormal, with no new folder or new file options.
The event viewer doesn't pull up anything.
I have reverted the C drive to a previous time using EaseUS backup, and everything works okay for a time, and then after a time, the same thing happens again, without any obvious trigger. I have done this several times, and I am at the tearing my hair out stage. If anyone can shed some light on this, I would be most grateful.
Found a solution - I went to another pc running Win 10, and in regedit I exported the shellex keys for Drive, Directory, and Folder, and imported them onto my own pc, and now it is working OK. But I still don't know what corrupted the registry in the first place.
