    My File Explorer opens, but I can only see the preview when hovering over the icon


    When I press to open File Explorer, it opens up but I can't see it. If I then hover over the File Explorer icon, it shows a preview of my File Explorer, but when I click on it to maximize the view, nothing happens. I've tried common methods to fixing File Explorer but nothing is working.

    :)

    No Task Bar (hovering) preview, no peeking, no full screen is on hovering over and clicking

    When there is no window opened, hovering over taskbar app icons, a preview is shown, but on hovering over preview no full window is opened, and no peeking is done, and also clicking on that small preview, no window opened.

    1. And whenever there is a window is opened then hovering over taskbar icons doesn't gives any preview of the window.
    2. But it still opens window, on just clicking on task bar icons ( i.e. working fine ).

    And when two windows of any app is being opened and if minimized any of them then you can not maximise that minimized window...???

    • And when both windows of same app is being minimized then hovering over task bar icon of that app still shows those two previews, but clicking on any preview doesn't provide anything, and thus it all means after minimizing those two window of that app you
      can not recover any of the window.
    Basically the problem is I'm not able to open window ( or make full ) from any task bar preview and the First (1.) one also of first paragraph.
