  1. file explorer not responding when using an SDcard reader


    So im in the middle of trying to move filed around on SD cards for my nintendo switch following nintendos instructions on doing so and every time i try to plug my reader in with my micro sd card in the adapter, my file explorer keeps locking up. I did go through and make sure I had drivers updated across my whole computer, but that hasn't seemed to fix the issues. Its plugged into a 3.1 ussb slot as well.

    :)

  2. File Explorer Not Responding

    Hi,

    I am following very clear instructions online in order to fix File Explorer Not Responding on my brand new computer. Instructions I am following are at this link: https://www.****/knowledge/windows-10-file-explorer-wont-open-solved/

    I can get as far as Step 4 where I try to right click on Quick Access within the File Explorer but because it is Not Responding this action does not work and I have to close File Explorer.

    Does anyone have suggestions for how to get around this when File Explorer is Not Responding?

    Alternatively, should I consider storing larger files in a different drive of the computer?

    A little background: I have had this computer that came loaded with Windows 10 for about 1 month. The File Explorer would not respond when I first started using it (transferring in new files), and again recently when I have tried saving several (large) design
    files from Illustrator. This may be the culprit for it's bogging down; either that or perhaps because I just deleted 1000's of emails off of gmail? My text display size is at 100%.

    Thank you.

    ps I am not very computer savvy so please dumb down your responses!

    file explorer not responding when using an SDcard reader

    File Explorer not responding problem.

    Try this steps because I think it's related with quick access in file explorer:

    1. Open a new Explorer window.
    2. Click View in the ribbon.
    3. Click Options.
    4. Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    5. Click OK.
    Now it should hopefully work fine.
