    Windows 10 File Explorer crashing when I open or edit files


    Hi!
    I encountered this problem yesterday and i can't seem to find a solution anywhere.*Redface
    I can open the Windows File Explorer. But it seems to crash whenever I: Open a picture, edit a document, move files etc…
    I’ve already tried to run a "sfc /scannow"-test, but with no luck.
    Hope someone can help.

    Windows 10 File Explorer Crashing and Restarting On All 4 Of My Computers

    I began using Explorer++ because File Explorer is near unusable. Unfortunately, it wasn't perfect either because it still caused explorer to crash when Explorer++ would use File Explorer or shell functions. When I did a re-install of Windows 10, I did not
    install Explorer++ until File Explorer started failing. For test purposes, I've delete Explorer++ it and cleaned up the registry (there's no install/uninstall app).

    When I open "Recent Items" in %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows, explorer crashes.

    In Safe Mode, opening Recent Items does not cause explorer to crash however, it still crashes when creation a folder and still shows double libraries etc.

    where is documents folder in windows10

    Open Windows File Explorer, on the top is your Library Folders (including your Documents Library), right click any of them and choose 'Send to - Desktop (create Shortcut), done!

    EDIT: do not right click one of your Library folders in the tree view on the left in Windows File Explorer - this will crash Windows File Explorer!
