Solved: can't right-click in Wordpad
Another stupid, random problem.

I can no longer right-click in Wordpad. It literally just does nothing. If I press the physical Context Menu key on my keyboard which on mine is next to Right Ctrl, the context menu comes up fine & dandy. Just not when I right-click. Right-clicking works in every other program in my computer and wordpad works fine except for right-clicking, e.g. can use Ctrl-c and Ctrl-v.

Why did this happen (started within the last couple days) and how can I resolve it


This is the contents of my c:\windows\WORDPAD.INI file, which was last modified July 31st

wordpad, in C:\Program Files\Windows NT\Accessories, has a last modified of 2008 and I doubt the exe is faulty or corrupted since it otherwise works fine

whoa I fixed it! I removed my WORDPAD.INI file.

So for future reference to anyone else who experiences this (though I couldn't find a single other person on google), that's what to do!
