    Wierd File Explorer Behavior


    Just wondering if this is happening to anyone else. Whenever I right click on a shortcut and select 'Open File Location' of course File Explorer opens up as it should to the location that the shortcut points to. The weird thing is that when I close File Explorer, it immediately reopens and I have to close it again for it to stay closed. This does not happen if I merely open File Explorer directly. To eliminate the possibility that it is a problem with my mouse I repeated these steps using only the keyboard to navigate through these steps...still happens. It would be interesting to see if this is a problem only with my system or is it a Windows 10 10240 glitch.



    :)
