Properties fails to open when selected after right-click on This PC in build 17035. This PC context menu is entirely dead.

I right click on This PC icon on the desktop and then select Properties on the context menu.  Nothing happens.  In fact nothing on that context menu works at all.  Upvote feedback at:

Other devices show only a problem with Properties.

From the blog information about 17035, MS have been moving more from the control panel to Settings. In 17025, right clicking on This PC in File Explorer and selecting properties gives Control Panel/ System and security/ System.

For some time the same information is shown in Settings although in the two locations of System/ About and Update and Security/ Activation.

17035 has just cut the link to Control panel.

The context menu is dead for This PC on at least one device, though not on others, not just Properites.  I edited the original post.

Exact same problem with the desktop Network icon.

EDIT: Actually, it's only the Properties (right-click\Properties) of those two icons that are broken for me. The other right-click items work okay here.

This PC properties only works from the start menu under windows system and then right click my pc and select properties. This build not so good as it also keeps changing Private network to public network. Upvoted in Feedback Hub. I hope this gets fixed with the release of a build for AMD processors.
