Shift+Right click on pinned taskbar item causes explorer to restart

Occasional Visitor

I have noticed that on the few computers we have started updating to Windows 11, we have been having an issue with Shift + Right clicking pinned taskbar items (to open as another user) causing the taskbar and explorer to flash and restart.  This will usually happen maybe 2 times and then allow you to do it without issue.  This issue happens on all our Windows 11 computers, running 21H2 versions 10.0.22000.593 and 10.0.22000.527.


Anyone else experiencing this issue?  If so, do you have a resolution?

@MikeSheff I can concur this issue is happening on other machines. This always happens after a reboot for the first 2x times I try it, then it works fine thereafter. One thing I noticed is that it only seems to happen on my PC and not my VM. The PC was an upgrade while the VM is a greenfield build, not sure if that has a bearing on why.
