Computer is running Windows 10 Home
Dell , Inspiron 3647, Pentium G3220, 4 GB RAM, 64 Bit

When we right-click on a file on the desktop, the rotating cursor appears, and it might take a few minutes if at all for the options menu to appear.

What should I look for?

Thanks

One thing to try would be to delete temporary files (look in your users folder, appdata, local, temp) and then run disk cleanup.

Another thing to try would be System File Checker. Open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete, restart and test.

Did you install any new software recently before this problem began? From past experience, if the right click context menu gets too packed, it may take a little bit longer to open up. What you can try doing it removing programs that show up in your right click context menu. You can do this by going into the respective software's setting and there should be an option to remove it from the context menu.
