    Under Win 10, file explorer stopped working


    The file explorer stopped working. I tried to start the sfc /scannow utility, however the dos cmd prompt for admin does not come up. I tried a regular dos command, but apparently does not have admin privileges. My computer account has admin privileges.

    Any advise?

    :)

    Win 10 skips File Explorer

    Hello,

    I'm on the desktop (with all the tiles) and I click on File Explorer. From there I click on a file to open it and when I am finished with that file I click to exit it. Instead of just closing that file, as I want it to do, Win 10 skips File Explorer and goes
    back to the desktop and I have to re-click on File Explorer again to work on another file. How can I get Win 10 to stop doing that?

    TIA,

    RS
