    Applications Freezing Behavour

    Hi guys. Very odd one. Had a new Windows 10 install running for a few weeks now. With some applications e.g. File Explorer, Corel Paint Shop Pro 10 if I leave them for several hours when I click on the taskbar icon the screen flips to the app but when I click on the app window it just closes down, like it's minimised.

    I can kill the task etc no problem. Driving me mad...

    Any help much appreciated.

    Hi Brian,

    If your computer is freezing, it could due to the operating system being outdated, or that some applications in your system is causing it to freeze, etc. For us to isolate the issue about Windows 10 freezing, kindly respond to the questions below:

    • When does Windows 10 hangs/freezes? Is it after logging in to Windows? Or is it when you are using an application?
    • Are there any third-party applications installed on your computer?
    • Did you upgrade to Windows 10 from a previous version of Windows? If yes, which version of Windows was previously installed on your computer?

    As a first troubleshooting step, we suggest that you check if there are updates that are waiting to be installed on your computer. If there are, kindly install them and restart your computer. After restarting, check if Windows 10 still freezes. Here's how

    Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?

    The first thing to get the issue fixed would be to perform a System Maintenance troubleshooter and then check if the computer freezes after the applications are opened.

    Please follow the steps to run System Maintenance troubleshooter on the computer:

    • Type “Control Panel” on the search box.

    • Click on Troubleshooting.

    • Click on View all option on the left side of the Windows.

    • Click on System Maintenance option.

    • Click on Next and follow the onscreen instructions to troubleshoot the issue.
    Please revert if the issue happens with the freezing of the computer.
