And, for the record, the sfc /scannow thing ended up telling me I had a whole list of problems (I think 77).

That's another good reason to do a repair install, that's quite a few.

I'm not sure why this got marked solved.

Wasn't aware of that keyboard shortcut and, yes, it works for me too
I tried a repair install 12 months ago and it made no difference.

Yeah, sorry I kind of left that thread hanging and it was not as long ago as I'd thought. Heads going.
Anyway, turns out that whilst my snap still doesn't work my shake and the keyboard shortcut snap do.
From reading that previous thread it seems they didn't then so the repair install did do something.
It's weird though.
