    Explorer.exe crashes when pressing Alt+Tab


    Hello,


    I'm currently facing an issue where explorer.exe is continuously crashing when I alt+tab.

    I've also noticed it when trying to do other things such as snap an explorer window to fill half of my screen.

    This issue started occurring just this week and I checked my latest Windows updates and noticed I installed were the following.

    I also tried running the system file checker and DISM to repair any corrupt files.

    This did not seem to work.


    Any information helps.


    Thank you.

    :)

    alt + tab not working

    Alt-Tabbing in & out of games does not always work. It can also crash games in some cases.

  3. Alt + Tab = Crash

    Good evening,

    It appears that Windows 10 keeps crashing whenever I Alt + Tab out of a game and then attempt to go back in. When I Alt + Tab back in I'm met with a black screen. Then Windows 10 freeze and I can't do anything.

    Steps to reproduce:

    (1) Start game

    (2) Alt + Tab out

    (3) Do whatever in Windows 10

    (4) Alt + Tab back in

    >>>Black screen

    (5a) Ctrl + Alt + Delete to end process of game

    (6a) No clickable buttons in Windows 10 (can't even shut down)

    (5b) Ctrl + Alt + Delete

    (6b) Shut down (just spins indefinitely and doesn't actually shut down)

    This is a on a brand new copy of Windows 10 (not an upgrade). My current specifications are below:

    -5930K

    -MSI SLI Plus X99 Motherboard

    -16 GBs 2800 MHz RAM

    -2x NVIDIA Titan X GPUs

    -512 GB M2 SSD

    -1600w EVGA PSU

    Please advise on what is happening and if this will be fixed soon.

  4. Explorer.exe crashes when pressing Alt+Tab

    alt tabbing increases system performance?

    Alt+tab often forces the game to reinitialize the DirectX renderer. It's likely an opportunity to reattempt to start SLI/Crossfire if it didn't start with the game.

    Mind you, alt+tab is as likely to cause the game to crash as it is to improve performance. Some games support it, some don't, and some are somewhere in between.
