    File Directory Issue


    All,

    First of all I just wanted to say everyone has been very helpful on my past PC issues. Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Here's my problem:

    A few weeks back I had to reinstall Windows 10. After completion I noticed a problem with File Explorer. When I open it up I noticed some of the icons were white boxes. After a few minutes of being online the directory would diminish some. Instead of the normal hierarchy format with all the folders, now there are only a few folders and I can't extend the hierarchy. Also, the file explorers is taking some time of loading (green bar on top). There seems like to be a memory issue.

    Here's what I tried so far.

    • checkdisk
    • scannow
    • reload icon cache

    I've attached some screen shots on a Word document to give you some visual aid. Any suggestions???

    Take care,
    Craig

    :)

  2. File Manager will NOT create Directory Names or Rename a Directory

    8:11 PM 2/10/2016

    8. The File Manager will NOT create Directory Names

    Nor will it Rename a Directory

    It works Making Files, and Renaming them - just Not Directories.

    I even used the Clean Manager on all unimportant files,

    then Optimized (Defrag) the file structure, and Shutdown the system,

    then Rebooted the system from cold. No Good. Still Failing.

    The Windows Defender is up to date - Today.

    No known issues were reported there.

    ------------------------------------------------------------

    Sorry, I went too fast and left some info out.

    I have an HP Pavilion Desktop System,

    and am running Windows 10, version 1511,

    and use a Wide Screen Monitor.

    As I have been doing for years, I create the directory

    in the Windows Explorer (Not Internet Explorer) that

    has always been considered the File Manager.

    As always, I create the Directory, then Move (or Copy)

    the desired files into that Directory.

    Yesterday the File Manager STOPPED Making Directories.

    It also won't allow a Directory to be Renamed.

    And it won't allow a Directory to be Moved.

    I have resorted to using the DOS Command Console

    to Create and Remove desired Directories.

    I issue the "md" command to Make a Directory.

    I issue the "rd" command to Remove a Directory.

    This is a longer and tedious way to work, but being

    an old hand at DOS it is the only File Manager I have.

    I would like to obtain a downloadable version of

    Windows 10, v1511 (or the latest version)

    so that I can re-install it as is necessary.
