Windows 7: Context menu position changed by itself

Context menu position changed by itself

Hi!

Today I installed the latest Windows 7 updates and then I noticed that when I right-click on the desktop the context menu appears down and left instead of up and right as before. I searched,found a soultion on the forums and changed it back to the right side but can't find out how to make it appera up of the mouse pointer instead down. Any idea? And why would a Windows update mess that up in the first place?

Thank you.

Hello Bellzemos,

Not sure why it would cause that either.

If the menu doesn't have enough space (ex: edge of screen border) to open to the right, it will open to the left by default. Is that what happened?

No. Nevermind, I'll just leave as it is, thanks anyway.

Ok. Glad you got it sorted though.
