    .bat file to restart explorer.exe sometimes fail


    I have a .bat file with this line of code only without quotation.

    "taskkill /F /IM explorer.exe & start explorer"

    problem is 50% of time it will work as intended, but other 50% it simply does not start explorer once task is killed. what is causing this and how can I change the code to fix this?

    I have an idea but unsure if it'll work, maybe taskkill on one line only, then another line to check if explorer is running, and lastly a line to run explorer.exe again but I'd have no idea what those line would look like. also I think it might be to do with SSD so fast that when its trying to run explorer.exe the previous task not killed off completely which preventing it from starting up might be the cause.

    pls help.

    :)

    Bat or Exe file to restart Computer Browser Service

    About 1 out of every 6 times I turn my laptop on I have to restart the computer browser service to be able to connect to networks. Is there a bat or exe file I can create that I can just click on and run to restart the service instead of having to go into
    the services/computer browser area to restart each time this happens? This is for windows 10. Thanks.

  4. .bat file to restart explorer.exe sometimes fail

    Cannot run an .exe file from .bat file in windows server 2016

    I can not run .exe file from a .bat file, .bat file is dynamically create file which contains path to the .exe file. I can see the log of .bat file it prints echo statements but when It comes to execute .exe file it just skip. when I run .exe file manually
    it runs perfectly. we are doing this through task scheduler.

    I would like to get some input what am I missing in the configuration.
