Did you find a solution to this? All my Windows 10 Laptops exhibit this behavior.

@ascurfy No, no solution, and the problem persists. I am glad to hear that there is someone else out there with the same problem.
Please get in touch with me privately, and I'll open a support case with Microsoft, and include both of us in it. Since I only have one affected machine, but you have several, we ought to be able to get Microsoft to solve it.
You can reach me at LIBOVE at FELINES dot ORG
Do you have any software installed - on all of those affected laptop computers, but NOT on other computers which you have which are NOT affected - that might conceivably be "interesting" from the point of view of having keyboard intercept functions which might interact oddly? I doubt that it's third party software, as nothing on my one affected computer is not also installed somewhere else in my environment, but I imagine that Microsoft support will ask...

I have solved the issue. Well it works for me anyway.
We use redirected folders for users both for onsite with desktops and offsite on laptops over DirectAccess. We are in transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10. An existing users shortcut to cmd.exe was created on a Windows 7 computer at some point in the past. I think the issue lies with the shortcut. I deleted the shortcuts to Windows PowerShell (CMD underneath) in the redirected Start menu and recreated them from the actual executable from the computer and this fixed the issue.
I guess those shortcuts created on a Windows 7 computer have some issue when run on a Windows 10 computer.

That's very interesting. The computer on which I see the problem I don't know whether it was upgraded from Windows 7, or it if's a clean Windows 10 install.
Only one user profile suffers the problem on that computer. Other profiles do not.
As noted in my original post, I have re-created the shortcut / copied one from another (definitely native Windows 10, not upgraded Windows 7 install) and it still exhibits the behavior.
So it's definitely something about the user profile rather than about the shortcut itself.
Given your recent experience, it seems also to perhaps be something about the user profile (which in your case now no longer is redirected). The question is .. what?
Please keep ahold of one machine or user profile which exhibits the problem. I have opened a paid support case with Microsoft, and they may want to get information from you, too.
