  1. My internet drops for a few seconds when I open File Explorer


    Hello!I'm having this issue that whenever I open File Explorer my internet connection drops for about 2-3 seconds then it comes back. It is very annyoing when I'm in a call or meet because it freezes. This is also happening when I'm downloading something from my browser and the download proccess suddenly stops because I have to choose where I want to download it in File Explorer. Can someone tell me how do I solve this problem? I tried searching on other forum websites and apparently other people had the same problem, but I couldn't find any solution.

    :)

    unable to drag and drop files into website on Internet Explorer 11

    Hi Cristy,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community. I understand that you are unable to drag and drop files into website on Internet Explorer 11.
    I will surely help you to fix this issue.

    This issue could have occurred due to these reasons:


    • Incorrect Internet Explorer settings.

    • Some browser add-ons.
    Try the steps listed here:

    Method 1:

    I suggest you to disable add-ons and check if it helps.

    Manage add-ons in Internet Explorer 11

    Method 2:

    If the issue persists, I suggest you to reset Internet Explorer settings and check if it helps.

    Change or reset Internet Explorer settings

    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/internet-explorer/reset-ie-settings#ie=ie-11

    Disclaimer: Reset Internet Explorer to its default configuration. This step will also disable any add-ons, plug-ins, or toolbars that are installed. Although this solution is quick, it also means that, if you want to use any of those add-ons
    in the future, they must be reinstalled.

    Hope this information helps. Reply to the post with updated status of the issue so that we can assist you further.

    windows 10 file explorer opens for a split second then crashes

    This problem occurs if I try opening any folder or file explorer itself for example:

    • an existing file folder with files in it that is on my desktop,
    • opening the file explorer from the taskbar (I have since unpinned it as this was suggested as a fix in some forums)
    • opening file explorer using the start menu
    • opening file explorer using the windows key + E
    In each case the explorer dialogue box will pop up momentarily then disappear again (perhaps a second or 2 sometimes, other times just a flash.)

    So far I have tried:

    • ensuring that windows 10 is totally up to date
    • run the sfc scannow - this came up with no error found
    • made sure that the settings for file explorer were set to opening at 'this pc'

    I am absolutely out of ideas. Can someone please help?
