  1. Cursor spinning forever after clicking on a file in explorer or desktop icons.


    It happend to me today that I open explorer and left click & right click on one of the download files then the explorer crashed and I close the tab and tried again and again and the cursor keeps spinning and I cant even close the tab itself only in from the task bar. It also happens when I right click in the desktop icons and it keeps spinning and I cant click any icon again. Please help me fix this problem I've been trying hard to find a way to fix it

    :)

    Cannot find Desktop Icon in File Explorer

    Now that is interesting. If I do what you suggest, File Explorer Address bar changes to C:\Users\username\documents and the missing ICONS are there. But there is still not a "Desktop" folder.

    Is this a step in the right direction?
