    File Explorer Crashes


    I just got the latest Windows 10 update and now File Explorer crashes. If I double-click a file to open it, then it does not respond. If I right-click a file, it does not respond. This happened to me before I I wiped my computer clean and reinstalled Windows. I do not want to have to do a reinstall every time there is an update. Please help. I need to be able to open files from File Explorer.

    :)
