  1. Windows 10 File Explorer Highlight glitch


    Every time I try to select multiple files in File Explorer and scroll down while selecting my file explorer keeps highlighting for about 30 seconds even when I've let go of my mouse. I've tried multiple mice and don't face this problem anywhere expect File Explorer.

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    I cannot highlight files in Windows 10

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Community.

    1) Does this issue occur with any specific files in the File explorer?

    2) Does this issue occur n any specific drive?

    3) Does this issue occur on Files on Desktop?

    As a work around, I suggest you to highlight the files of the desktop(if any) and check.

    I suggest you to check the issue in Safe Mode and see if it’s working slowly.

    To enter Safe Mode in Windows 10:


    • Restart your PC.

    • Press Shift + restart
      before the Windows logo appears.

    • Click See Advanced Repair Options.

    • Click Troubleshoot.

    • Click Advanced Options.

    • Click Windows Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart.

    • You then see a list where you can choose
      Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking (depending on whether you think you’ll need the Internet).

    I also suggest you to run system file checker scan and check the issue.

    Sfc /scannow will inspect all of the important Windows files on your computer, including Windows DLL files. If System File Checker finds an issue with any of these protected files, it will replace it.

    Follow the steps:


    • Press Windows key + X and select
      Command prompt (Admin).

    • At the Command Prompt, type:
      sfc/scannow


    Hope this helps. Please reply to us with the status of the issue.

    Thanks.
