    Explorer.exe randomly crashing


    My explorer.exe has been crashing randomly and I can't figure out why.

    Also sometimes constantly right clicking my desktop would crash it as well.

    The reliability history shows the times when explorer.exe crashed randomly. It usually happens around night time.

    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

    Explorer crashing

    Thanks Zat. I had never looked at event viewer and it had more info than I thought. Seems the problem was a second computer I was trying to network with. Unplugging the ethernet cable fixed the crashes. Explorer must have been looking in the wrong place I guess.
