    Unable to Open File Explorer

    Dear Team,

    I am unable to open file explorer or any other folders on my windows 10 desktop. I tried almost all the methods suggested in the online search results but nothing.

    When i click on any folder or File Explorer icon on task bar, it just dosent give any response at all. As if its a dead file.

    Please help as my entire work is in these folders.

    Awaiting response.

    Regards

    File Explorer won't open?

    Hi,

    Welcome and thank you for posting in Microsoft Community. We appreciate your interest in Windows 10.

    I understand the inconvenience that you are unable to access file explorer after upgrade to Windows 10, we will help you to resolve this issue.

    This issue might occur, when some of the system files got corrupted.

    Perform the below troubleshooting steps and check:

    Step 1: I suggest you to perform the
    System File checker (SFC) scan to check if there are any corrupted system files that could be causing this issue. Refer to these steps to perform a SFC scan:

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated command prompt.
    • In the Command Prompt type the following command:
      sfc/scannow and press Enter.
    • After the scan, restart the computer.

    Hope this information is helpful. Kindly update the status of the issue. We will be happy to assist you.
