    Explorer "Working on it"


    Explorer is trying to open "Quick access" folder to find last entries but looks like doesn't succeed, in loop.

    That has happened to me after automatic windows update


    1. Click many times in corner "X" (exit) until Explorer closes.

    2. Open "Trash" folder. Will work because it opens directly the "Trash" folder not the "Quick Access".

    3. Right click "Quick Access" folder and select Options

    4. In the "General" Tab unmark two Privacy checkbox. "Show recent files..." and "Show recent folders..."

    5. Click OK


    6. Close "Trash" Explorer window

    7. Start Explorer ... BINGO

    8. Right click again "Quick Access" folder and select Options and remark those "Privacy" 2 checkboxes, so your last used list will start building up.



    Note... As my Windows is in portuguese some words might be different than the english Windows version.

    :)

  2. File Explorer Search Not Working


    I am trying to search in File Explorer (Windows Explorer, My Computer) and it will not find anything. I can copy text from a name in the list and paste it in the search box and it still finds nothing. I have looked at the suggestions that have been posted and nothing I find that is relative to this works. Anyone have any suggestions? I am running Win 10 Pro on an I3 coustom desktop computer.
