Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

Right click doesn't work in IE8

When I right-click on a hyperlink (text, picture etc) I expect that the page will open in a new tab, and it says "connecting" but nothing ever happens. What's going on? Have they changed the way this works in IE8?

This could be a problem with a particular unregistered module.

Try this:
Shut down IE.
Go to Start>Run, type in "regsvr32 actxprxy.dll"(without the quote marks), then hit OK. You should get a message that says "actxprxy.dll successfully registered", or something to that effect.

Re-start IE, and see if the problem is resolved.

Hi,

You can try setting Internet Explorer 8 to it's default settings. Open IE8 and click on the tools tab on the top right hand side, select internet options, click on the advanced tab and click on reset.
This will reset all the settings of IE8 so if you have any favourites/bookmarks i suggest you back then up.
You will get a warning about resetting IE8, just carry on and reset IE8 and see if you can access hotmail emails.

You may also need to install Adobe flash player and java software too.


Regards.

Right click is not working in IE8


Give this a try...
Go to your start menu / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools and select "Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)".
This will run a session of IE with all of the installed add on features disabled. Try going to a web page and seeing if you have right click ability now.
If you do then it is an addon that is causing the problem.

To find which one is causing it
1. Open a new IE8 window normaly. (Not the No Add-ons method)
go to the Tools Menu in IE8 and select manage addons.
Disable the Addons one by one until the problem goes away. Then renable the other addons that were not causing the problem.


If the problem still exists when you are running in no add-ons mode... try putting your cursor in an edit box in a web page and hitting SHIFT+F10 and see if that brings up the right click menu. (Will tell us of there is something blocking the context menu all together or just the right mouse click)
