Simply opening the start menu is enough to fix it for me, but this is annoying nonethelessI have same problem since several months back. When i dont use PC icons freezes when trying to click on them nothing happens. Need either ctrl-alt del or open some program from statusbar and close then icons works. Microsoft either dont know about this issue or slow to fix it. I wonder if i should go back to Win10 because this is so disturbing
I even reinstalled Win11 1 month ago and problem comes back. Idk if its related to some update or not
I haven't downloaded any of those. Issue has been going on for a few months now with no solution. A fresh install of windows doesn't help either. Win10 works just fine, but win11 has this issue as soon as i install the updates.Update Explorer Patcher or Open Shell or any other customization utility you have.
Too much effort for what is (to me) a minor frustration occasionallyIn this case use Windows Update Advanced Manager (WUA) utility to check for updates and install one at a time until you find the culprit. Then uninstall it and block it to never install again.
Yep... same here. It's really weird.Funny thing is that it is only left side on the desktop that have this bug. If i move icons to the right side and dont use pc for a while it never freezes but if they are on left they do this.
I have very minimal software on my PC, let alone anything non-MS running in the background. No AV either,Looks like it has to do with some window size. The left side of the desktop is inside the area and affected, while the right side of the desktop is off limits and unaffected. Which application tries unsuccessfully to draw a window and makes your system freeze? Can you check the logs when this happens? Probably some third party antivirus that scans the system when idle or an application trying to update when idle...
I just did another fresh install of the OS and the issue is still present even when i haven't downloaded anything yet. Installed only updates and drivers.Some background application (that fails to draw its window on screen for some reason) steals focus so you cannot use the desktop icons on the left. The icons at the right are out of the application's window area, so you can click on them and restore focus. The same is done when clicking on the taskbar, you change focus to the File Explorer application (the respective in Mac OS is Finder). What is that application, I don't know. Try disabling all startup applications and enable one-by-one to find out. If that doesn't work, try non-Microsoft services.
