Mouse hover-over Start menu icon while using Desktop fails to invoke Metro Start menu consistently: known bug ?

    Question

  • To further explain:

    1- From initial Metro start screen, click Desktop

    2- Do some work on Desktop

    3- Hover mouse cursor over Start menu icon at lower left hand side of Desktop

    4- Sometimes the Metro-style Start menu appears and sometimes it does not

    5- You seem to have to "reset" the Start menu by left-clicking elsewhere on the Desktop

    Is this a known bug or is this my problem ? Thanks for your time.

  • You have to move the mouse pointer to the extreme left and extreme bottom of the screen, i.e. as though you're trying to go off the screen.
