    File Explorer Just Aborts


    I am having no success with File Explorer.

    As the title sez, I try to view folders and files, but File Explorer will appear to be fetching the next query result (files from the selected folder), I get the activity icon turning, I'm waiting,..... and then nothing.

    All the task bar icons vanish, the screen reverts to whatever task was active (my web browser usually), ...some time passes, and then all the task bar icons return, but no more active File Explore.

    I can re-open FE,... but I have the same or very similar results.

    Please point me to the right place to understand what's up with File Explorer.

    Until just recently I had no issues, zero using File Explorer!

    I have verified that all Win 10 Updates are current.

    I have restarted and cold started without any positive effect on this problem.

    :)
