    Booting with CMD instead of explorer.exe


    Hi guys!

    So yesterday I turned my laptop off for about 3 to 4 hours and when I turned it back on, after i put in my password, instead of booting with explorer as usual a cmd prompt popped up (as shown in the print that I was hopefully able to attach to this). When I type in "explorer.exe" on the prompt everything pops up normally, and everything works normally (as far as I know), but every time I turn it off and on again, it always boots with cmd instead of explorer...
    Can anyone help me out? Thanks!

    :)

  3. File explorer

    Hi Mick,

    I am sorry to know that the File Explorer is not working on the Taskbar.

    I suggest you to right-click on it to unpin it from the task bar.

    Then search for File Explorer in Search. Then right-click on it to Pin it to Taskbar.

    If the issue persists, try the steps below.


    • Type CMD in Search. Right click on it to run as an administrator.

    • Type the following 4 commands at the Command prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

    sfc /scannow

    powershell

    Get-AppXPackage -AllUsers |Where-Object {$_.InstallLocation -like "*SystemApps*"} | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)\AppXManifest.xml"}


    • Close the CMD window.

    • Check to see if the issue is resolved. If not, restart the PC.
    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.
