    Hello , Check This Out it May Solve Your Problem ,

    Click Start>Run, type regedit, click Ok, drill down in the registry to

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Policies\

    On the right side you have a list with 4 items, I added the last myself since I do not use Recent Documents...

    Double-Click each of the above listed and edit the Value data field, set it to 0 to disable the effect and set the number to 1 to enable a setting.

    Mine are setup like this:
    ForceActiveDesktopOn 0x00000000 (0)
    NoActiveDesktop 0x00000000 (0)
    NoActiveDesktopChanges 0x00000000 (0)
    NoDriveTypeAutoRun 95 00 00 00
    NoRecentDocsHistory 0x00000001 (1)

    When done reboot and the right-click option is back again.

    Also double-check here if the above does not work although it should.

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\
