    Right clicking specific file crashes windows explorer


    I was messing around with an mp4 in audacity and after exporting it, trying to play the file, right click on the file, or even hovering over it crashes windows explorer. It doesn't happen with any other file or folder, and right clicking in the blank space also works fine. Everything I've seen online is about right clicking anywhere, so I don't think those'd help me.

    :)
