  1. Windows Explorer crashing in windows 10


    Recently moved back to Windows from Apple after more than 10 years. And am not sure if this was a wise decision especially now I am experiencing windows explorer crashing after only 1 month of buying a new laptop. It seems to only happen in certain occasions when I open a sub-folder. It hovers for a few seconds and then closes itself. Does it again in the same folder but not in other folders.


    Been going through the many results from MS support but most I found goes back to 2016. Are there any updates to this issue? I would have thought that after 3 years MS would have found a solution.


    Right now, I cannot open my files because every time I go into a particular folder it keeps closing/crashing.


    Please help. Am a complete novice with windows.


    Regards

    Jimmy

    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

    Windows explorer crashing

    Hi,

    I am having the same problem as the OP in this thread.
    Windows Explorer crashes whenever I open my external HDD or thumb drive in explorer..

    I have tried the fixes listed in the above thread and I am getting the same error message as 'ktadie' (post 16). I think this is because I am running Windows 7 Professional. Windows explorer crashes when I open my 'Films' folder on my brand new 2tb external HDD. I have about 300 .avi files in this folder and some of the .avi files are several years old.

    In short I believe I need the same fix given by 'Wile E' (post 7) but updated for Windows 7 Professional.

    Thanks in advance.

    Windows Explorer crashing in windows 10

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    Windows Explorer crashing in windows 10 wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).
