    Save File Explorer settings for re-application [​IMG]


    I've made some alterations to File Explorer's settings, such as Details view with file extensions column and saved the view for folders of the same type. These changes did not survive an update so I had to redo them. Is there a way to save and restore such modifications?

    :)

    Saving/Opening files crashes applications

    Let's further isolate your concern about the File Explorer. We'd like to gather additional information to resolve this issue. Please answer the following:

    • Did you install any recent application before this happened?
    • Have you tried clearing the history of the File Explorer? To do this, open File Explorer
      > View > Options > Change Folder and search options
      > Privacy > Clear File Explorer History >
      Clear > OK.

    In the meantime, we suggest that you run the netsh and winsock reset as an initial troubleshooting step to fix any network related issue that may be affecting your device. To do this, you may check these steps:

    • Type cmd in the search box > right-click Command Prompt >
      Run as administrator.
    • Type netsh in the Command Prompt > press Enter.
    • Type winsock in the Command Prompt > hit Enter.

    Let us know if the recommended solution works for you.
