Windows 7: Shift-Right click in File explorer is disabled

Shift-Right click in File explorer is disabled

When I shift-right click on a folder in file explorer, the context menu doesn't show up. It used to work. Right click works fine. This is on Windows 7 Ultimate logged in as admin.

I KNOW it works with millions of users! It's the normal behavior of Windows. As I mentioned, it used to work. Now it doesn't. Is there a setting for this?

I don't understand the point of telling me it works on your computer. It doesn't work on mine and I am looking for a fix. Not proof it works on other computers!

Do you remember when it stopped working?

No.. I seldom use it. The only time I use it when I want to open a DOS window on a folder.

Why don't you just pin the dos command prompt to the startup window?

In search box left corner, type in CMD, right click and select pin to taskbar.
Let me know if you need more help.
