  1. File explorer crashing every other time I use it


    I've had this problem for a few weeks now. I use it to upload something, or just open it to use the files directly, and before it even loads anything it freezes and goes white. The only way to fix this is to close it, which takes multiple seconds and sometimes even requires hitting a "close program" option in a special prompt box (not the normal one). Is there a way to fix this? I tried clearing File Explorer's history but it didn't work. It shows up in the problem reports app but all it says is "A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows." How can i fix this?
