How to fix Windows 10 cursor showing Blue loading icon for long whenever we right click on the desktop?

Recommended to take backup of registry and to keep a Windows 10 Installation Drive.

  • Open RUN

Hold Windows key+R and it will be opened or you can search for Run in the search box.

  • Type ‘regedit‘ in the box and click OK.
  • It will open the Registry editor.

You should be careful while working with the registry. It is recommended to take a backup of the registry before making any changes in it.

  • Navigate through this folders HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\background\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers

  • You can delete the graphics driver. In the PC I am using, it is Nvidia and I deleted NvCplDesktopContext.

It worked for me, what about you?

Before doing this, take a backup of the registry.
