    File Explorer Crashing

    Hello, so i am trying to open file explorer on my laptop from the start menu and where it is pinned on the start menu. When i do this, file explorer opens for a couple of seconds and closes on both. When this happens, I also hear the hard drive make a noise inside. I can however access my files through a different dirrectory such a a C:/ shortcut i have on my desktop. I have an Asus GL752. I dont know what is causing this but any help is greatly appreciated.
    Update: so, it only closes when i try to open quick access within file explorer
    Update#2: i fixed it, i had to open file explorer where it didnt open to quick access, go to file, and folder options and clear file explorer history

    Windows 10 File Explorer Crashing and Restarting On All 4 Of My Computers

    I began using Explorer++ because File Explorer is near unusable. Unfortunately, it wasn't perfect either because it still caused explorer to crash when Explorer++ would use File Explorer or shell functions. When I did a re-install of Windows 10, I did not
    install Explorer++ until File Explorer started failing. For test purposes, I've delete Explorer++ it and cleaned up the registry (there's no install/uninstall app).

    When I open "Recent Items" in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows, explorer crashes.

    In Safe Mode, opening Recent Items does not cause explorer to crash however, it still crashes when creation a folder and still shows double libraries etc.
