  1. Right clicking files crashes File Explorer


    The screen would stop for a second, go black, then reset itself as if nothing actually happened. This only affects my image files.

    I tried ShellExView and disabling any third-party context menus, but that didn't work. I tried Autoruns, but I couldn't find anything that's causing any problems either. I'm at a loss on what I can do next, this issue has just appeared today, and I use the right click button for everything. If there are any other suggestions, please let me know, I'm happy to give them a shot Right clicking files crashes File Explorer :)

    Right clicking files crashes File Explorer

    File Explorer crashes after Right Click in Desktop


    Download: ShellExView - Shell Extension Manager For Windows
    NOTE: download version 1.97 or later, else Restart Explorer won't work in step 4


    1. This program does not require installation, just right click and run as Administrator
    2. From the menu, click on Options then click on Filter by Extension Type and select Context Menu. Also put check marks as shown

    3. Click on the screen, Hold down CTRL Key+A to select all then click on the red button on top left corner to disable all.
    4. Click on the Options again and select Restart Explorer
    5. Now try to right click on desktop to see if it fixes your problem. If it does then start to enable one by one and repeat step 4 until the problem occurs again, that's the offending extension.
