are you referring to left-clicking taskbar icons? or right-clicking the taskbar and not getting a popup menu?

try starting in safe mode to see if the problem persists:

this one is a bit more tedious:

do a clean boot, disable everything at startup, then enable one at a time, to isolate the cause of the problem.

do both mice use USB? you could try a different USB port.

run windows update.
