        Windows 10. Just noticed that when you click on the Windows 10 START button nothing happens. Also you can’t click on a picture file. Appreciate any suggestions.

        Not sure this applies, but sometimes Windows Explorer process gets stuck. Try Ctrl-Alt-Delete and click Task Manager to open up Task Manager window. Within Task Manager (Process tab), find Windows Explorer process and click on it to select. There should be a Restart button in lower right part of window. Click on the Restart button to restart Windows Explorer and a lot of times that gets things working again. If the processes are sorted by name, Windows Explorer will be very near the bottom.
