Can't click windows icon and hot corners not working

For some reason, after using my pc for awhile, I can no longer click/rightclick the windows icon on the bottom left side of the screen. None of the hot spots in any corners work but I can stick click my taskbar or click the windows key botton on the keyboard to get to the start menu. Every time this happens I am forced to restart my computer. It's annoying enough to where I will reinstall if I have to but I would like that to be a last resort.

hi, you don't need to dig deeper and don't need to change registry value. just restart windows explorer from the task manager.

 My friend this is a Windows 8.1 Update 1 bug. Try this steps:

step 1. HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ImmersiveShell\EdgeUI

step 2. Set both DisableTLCorner and DisableTRCorner to the data value of 0

step 3. exit and Restart computer

Try this steps and everything is ok :)
