Have you tried a restart? I use the word restart deliberately (rather than shut down and start up again) because of the way Win 10 works. When you shut down it stores information so that the next time the startup is quicker. If something is stuck then using restart means that it does not use previous information, ie a cleaner start.

If that doesn't help let us know which particular dialog box you mean.

Is it a laptop or a PC?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Please elaborate.


That is what it feels like. We are not getting enough information to help you.
What are you clicking on?
What Machine?
Is it icons you click on or the desktop?
What about the Start button? Do you get the normal menu? What happens when you try to open a program from the start menu? Does the Search work?
OR is this from within a specific program? We have no idea so you will have to give us more information.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I tried the restart. It actually seemed to help for a short time. Now it is back to dialog boxes.

When I say click, I mean anytime I use the cursor....to work with type, pull down menu's, try to highlight something, or even to click on a box for selection a choice as in the submit follow up or preview follow up buttons below.

It sounds like roughly half of Chrome's contex menu. Are you using a mouse, or touchpad? What happens when you use the other button?
