  1. File explorer opens when I try to open CMD


    The title is pretty self-explanatory but I'll repeat it.


    When I type cmd in the windows search bar I get a small window that pops down really quick. After that file explorer opens up. when I press WIN+R and type in CMD it does the same. When I open cmd with powershell I do get to see what it says. See image.

    File explorer opens when I try to open CMD 2e164a24-6d97-49a5-b46b-d1229adaf21b?upload=true.png

    This is what popus up when I open CMD in powershell and this is the same message I get when I try to open a terminal in lets say visual studio code.


    I guess cmd runs the explorer command immediatly when it opens but I have no clue how this happend.

    I thought it might be a virus for some odd reason, because I literally can't think of anything else so my antivirus is scanning atm.


    Any help would be much appreciated.


    Also, When I restarted my PC and ran CMD again it ran some lines of commands but I was to baffled to take a screenshot next time when I restart I'll screenshot it because it ran slow enough to take a screenshot of.

    Trying to open cmd but file explorer opens instead

    Hi,

    When trying to open the batch file, a tiny window that contains the cmd window appears and quickly disappear, while at the same time opens up a file explorer window.

    Not even trying to open cmd works, same thing happens.
