    Kindly answer the following questions for us to better understand your concern:

    • When did you start noticing the debug text file on your desktop?

    • Do you experience difficulty using the computer after you noticed the debug text file?
    • Are you getting any error messages after you noticed the debug text file?
    • Where did you see the long information that you posted? Is it inside the debug text file?
    • Is the debug opening automatically when you boot up your computer?
    Hope to hear from you soon

    debug

    Hello,

    It seems that the debug file on your desktop is created when your device did its weekly cleanup process. To isolate the issue, we would like you to answer the following questions:

    • Are you using a 3rd party app to schedule the clean up?
    • Is this the first time that the debug file shows on your desktop?
    • Do you have a 3rd party app or a plugin for instant messaging service?

    Looking forward to your response.

    Hi Sneha,

    I am Sumit, an Independent Advisor and a 3 year Windows Insider MVP here to help.

    This is a known issue. I have written about it here:

    Deleting the crashpad folder should resolve it temporarily.
