Clipboard Copy does not work from File List, Win10

Clipboard Copy does not work from File List.
More so, (Windows) context-menu does not work from File List.

Win10 1809x64
BRU 3300 x86

It does (they do) work from the Directory Tree.


STR:

Right-click a file(s) in the File List.

Expected:

A 'Clipboard Copy' context-menu displays, that expands, allowing various means of copying the file name(s) to the Windows clipboard.

Actual:

There is no context-menu - at all - only the (already) expanded options of copying the file name(s) (& what is there is ineffectual at that).


Seems this has been the case at least since BRU 2713 (on Win10).
(I use the ZIP versions rather then the installer.
There is no issue in this respect in XP or Win7.)
Bitness does not look to matter.

Works on mine just fine. Windows 1803. BRU 3.3.10 Unicode 64

You seem to have some 3rd party interference with your context menus.

As a start for diagnosing the problem, refer to these programs:

Nirsoft ShellExView x64 - enable disable Shell Extensions
Nirsoft ShellMenuView v1.36 - Disable-enable context menu items of Explorer
Ultimate Windows Context Menu Customizer (older - have to google that)
Context Menu Editor 1.1 by Windows Club

These just deal with context menus. Your issue may be something else entirely including possible malware.

Hope it helps.

One more thing.

The Windows upgrade from 1803 played havoc with my system including losing Volume Shadow Copy Service completely (your milage may vary:) )
So much so that I reverted back to 1803. Since you are running a newer version, this may have been an unforeseen consequence. Windows is trying to force me to 1908 currently - I keep holding off but eventually it will ignore and do the update.

Just a thought.
