Im finding that when I exit certain full screen exclusive games when I left click on the start menu the menu refuses to appear.  I can right click and the right click menu appears but not the left!  My current thoughts is that is common to full screen applications that either have HDR enabled and/or have a different exclusive full screen mode resolution set to the native desktop.  For example I am running Windows 10 in 4k 3840x2160 but I drop resolution on certain games (in-game) to 2160x1440.  The only solution I have found is a reboot.  I currently have Windows 11 running on the following spec:

 

ASUS Rampage VI Extreme MB / i9 7960x / 2 x Titan XP (SLI enabled) / 64gb DDR4 3200mhz
