    File explorer problem

    Hello forum, i am new to this site so nice to meet you all.

    Since my installation of windows 10, i had some problems with the file explorer option.

    When you click on 'start' and you see file explorer and decide to click on that, i expected it would be something like my documents etc. But what happens to me is that explorer self seems to restart completely. Turning off or not showing the windows taskbar and at the same time the background. While other programs work in that short time.

    After searching some answers that i could't find, i decide to come here for help.

    So if any of my fellow windows 10 users has the same problem or found a answer to this problem it would be a great help.

    Thanks in advance!

  3. Win 10 - File Explorer Crashes

    Hello MSFT Support,

    Where have you gone?...this is a major issue for many loyal customers but as you can tell frustration is setting in with many in the lack of direction from Microsoft. I feel like we are trying various home remedies when the problem is with Microsoft File
    Explorer which we rely on being stable and available.

    Having us go to SafeMode is not a solution, also you could create more problems for customers in that BitLocker may come into play, which doesn't appear to be easy way to suspend this in non-Enterprise versions of Win10 before rebooting into SafeMode.

    Please give us some direction or when the fix will be implemented?

    It would be a real shame if you lose loyal customers to Apple or Google but lack of leadership here may steer many in that direction.

    Best Regards!

    File explorer problem

    Hi there.

    You could try searching Event Viewer to see if there are any related errors.

    Option 1

    Right click on the start icon
    Choose Event Viewer
    Click on the little arrow by Custom Views
    Click on Administrative Events

    Go through them until you find any related to file explorer.

    Option 2

    Open new Settings App
    Type in File Explorer in the search bar
    Click on File Explorer options
    A dialog box appears
    In the drop down box at the top, select This PC
    In Privacy untick both boxes

    This may help prevent crashes, its quite possible that file explorer is having trouble with recent files its trying to show.
