    File Explorer error message


    I just tried to open explorer.exe and got: "This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action..."

    The program works fine if I click on a folder--it just won't open on its own.

    I had this problem (without the error message) in Win 7, but it went away when I first installed Win 10--now it's back.

    :)

  3. File Explorer error message

    Hi Bart,

    In most cases, this issue is caused by incorrect registry entries or a third-party program that prevents opening files on your computer. We recommend booting your computer in safe mode and check if the issue persists. If not, we suggest performing a clean
    boot on your computer.

    For your reference, check this article on how to start your PC in safe mode in Windows 10. Also, click this
    link on how to perform a clean boot in Windows.

    If you need further assistance, don't hesitate to reach out.

    Had not done it before because it did not seem to be for Win 10, but I did it now and it worked. Thanks!

  10. This was what worked for me:

    https://superuser.com/questions/7205...as-no-program#

    "change the default view of File Explorer from Quick Access to This PC. Go to Control Panel, File Explorer Options and change the "Open File Explorer to" option to "This PC". Then you'll be able to open File Explorer."
