Computer Link in Start Menu Doesn't Work.

Hello guys,

Does anyone know how to fix the "Computer" Link in the Start Menu? When I click on it nothing happens and when I try and click properties on it, it brings up this screen instead of Explorer:

That is the proper screen you get when you click properties.

You could try running a system file check.

In an elevated command prompt type sfc /scannow

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

In the meantime, just type co in search, then choose computer from the list.

Display Favorites as a link not a menu in Start Menu
I think the only thing that will work here is a registry hack. By default if you set the start menu properties to display "favorites" it does so by a menu. It does not give you a choice to display this as a link or a menu like it does for other folders. Is there a way to fix this?
