    Folders not opening & cannot create new folders in Win 10

    Hi,

    I would prefer not to do restore as there's way too much stuff in my computer that I would need to move to other place before doing this etc, so I will only do this as a last effort. I created a new user account and the issue also persisted in there.

    Is there any other possible solutions?

    I could now resolve one of the problems by doing research myself, found a solution for it from other Windows forum and now I can create new folders. But the cmd problem still persists and I still have cmd instead of open when I double click folders and so
    double click does not open folders. Programs on the other hand open without problems when I double click their shortcuts in desktop.
