  1. Windows Explorer Crashes on Right Click


    I've been having this problem for about 2 months now.

    Basically whenever I go to right click a folder / my desktop explorer stops responding and eventually crashes. I've tried disabling extensions using ShellExView, and disabling shimgvw.dll using CMD Prompt.

    Can't really find any other information online about how to fix this annoying bug so I turned to reddit.

    Windows Explorer Crash

    Thank you for your reply. If the above steps did not work, let's try another workaround. You can try restarting your Windows Explorer from the Task Manager and see if it will resolve the issue. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Task Manager.
    • Click the drop-down arrow beside More details.
    • Under Processes tab, look for Windows Explorer from the list.
    • Select Windows Explorer, right-click on it and select Restart.

    After doing so, open Windows Explorer and see if it will crash again.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
