Start Menu Folders Missing Descriptive Text

Last Modified: 2020-01-16
I just noticed that when pointing at the Start menu Icon on the bottom left hand side, the folders do not show the Descriptive Text Pop-up Information . Also, when I click at the Start menu and point at any folder in the start menu a Default blue color fills in the background. I don't think I had seen that before. I am not sure what happened. I want to someone to help restore the descriptive text and remove the blue color from the background as well .Can someone help me please?

Thank you,
