  1. Have the same problem where file explorer is not responding, my apps all still run, desktop...


    I did sfc /scannow as i saw from previous thread,

    Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them.
    For online repairs, details are included in the CBS log file located at
    windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For offline

    repairs, details are included in the log file provided by the /OFFLOGFILE flag.


    And this shows, so whats the problem and how to resolve the issue

    :)

    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.
