When clicking on the tab of sheet1 in excel2010 with the left mouse button gives the menu you see when you click it with the right button.

It is only on sheet1, the other sheets don't have it

Does it behave same for old excel files? Sometimes this happens if sticky key is on but in that case same behaviour should occur for all sheets.

Dear Helvoet,

I did find this , maybe it will help you

Also had this issue and found the solution for it today! At least this works for HP Laptops.

The problem is NOT related to Excel or any other application. It is something on top of them all, some process that is running hidden and in the background and only pops up, when an application is maximized to full screen and only active in this area of the screen.

I did an investigation with the ProcessExplorer Tool, activated the context menu and just saw which process was responding on this. Therefore I found out, that the process HPWAMain.exe was the problem. This is the HP Wireless Assistant application.

SOLUTION: If you deinstall it or just deactivate this process, it will solve the problem!

This is one of the weirdest problems I've ever saw...

Hope this helps!
