  1. Explorer crashes, when download a File with a long Name.


    Hallo,
    today i downloaded a cab File from https://www.catalog.update.microsoft...l(R)%2082567LM , in the Download Folder.
    When i open the folder, the explorer hangs and i can only finish the process. So that the explorer crashes. Original name of the file is 20613991_3082d54880f565bbb12fdbe448a9766021763815.cab ,
    If I rename it, I can open the folder without any problems.

  2. Windows explore crash when searching

    The tenforums link solved this issue for me.

    The root cause is a Windows 10 bug where File Explorer crashes when long file names are included in a search result. The steps for the workaround are:

    • Open File Explorer
    • Click View > Options
    • Open the View tab
    • Check "Always show icons, never thumbnails"
    • Click OK

    About files with name too long

    The problem in general is that if the file name itself is too long, then one can neither delete nor rename it, since File Explorer in Windows 10 crashes if you right click on the file name.
