Windows 7: Taskbar icons don't respond after Startup till I click at desktop

Taskbar icons don't respond after Startup till I click at desktop

I hope someone will be able to help me with advice.

In Windows 7 64bit (installed today) task bar icons don't respond after Start up.

BUT if I click just once anywhere on desktop surface, or if I double-click any icon
on desktop, upon that all task bar icons start to respond normally!?

Any idea how to get it work properly?

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like the focus is somewhere other than the Desktop.

If you click on a Taskbar icon twice, not double click, but click once, wait a sec then click again, does it work?

No, it does not.
But if I click just once at wallpaper anywhere on screen, and then click any Taskbar icon, it works!

Try creating a new user account to test with, see if the problem exists there. If not you could keep the new account and copy everything from the old to the new, then delete the new after you are sure all is well.

Desktop Icons under the Taskbar
I just cant seem to figure out why on my 2nd monitor (which is the main one) My taskbar slightly covers my Desktop Icons. I just cannot seem to get it to not do it. Only way to fix it is to not use the Align to Grid. But then all Icons have to be aligned by hand. One option was to adjust the...
