    Explorer not responding/hanging when dragging video files into folders


    IIRC this is an old bug but I can't remember what the solution is, basically I download a bunch of video files (TS or MKV primarily) and then drag them into a folder where I have a muxing bat file, for some reason explorer is hanging/not responding on certain files since doing a clean install of the CU but I can't remember how to remove this problem, I keep having to end task on explorer which isn't ideal *Sad

    :)

  2. File Explorer Not working correctly

    When I get on File Explorer It works fine until I go to my media files(My pictures and Videos). The folders themselves work just fine but as soon as i do anything to the actual file(Left click, Right click, Drag Click, Highlight) basically any form of
    interaction with the file my File Explorer freezes and stops responding and it stay like this until I end task.

  3. windows 10 file explorer not responding

    File Explorer hangs (Not Responding) when I create a new folder, and, especially when it's within a just-created folder. Eventually, File Explorer completes but, not without "handing" for a few (2-3) minutes.

    This is especially annoying, or, put another way, File Explorer "hangs" for a much longer time when creating a new folder during a browser download (latest version of Chrome). I need to create new folders before downloading.

    Obviously Edge (unforutnately) does not allow downloading into a folder of choice.

    Explorer not responding/hanging when dragging video files into folders

    Gaaah doing my head in!

    "The program explorer.exe version 10.0.16299.15 stopped interacting with Windows and was closed."

    Drag ts file = windows explorer hang, mux to MKV first then drag the mkv, no problem, it's related to video rip files that aren't 100% flawless and windows is trying to cache it or something, remember having this issue years back but can't remember the fix, disabled icons as thumbnails but it's not that, help!!!!
