file explorerWe all use File Explorer on our PCs to browse our files and folders to carry out our daily tasks. It gives us fundamental access to our documents and files on our computers and we heavily depend on it everyday. We have spotted a recurring issue within Windows 10 whereby File Explorer crashes when simply opening a folder on your computer.

However, there is a quick and simple solution to this issue. Please follow the steps below:

  • Click on the Start button
  • Type in the search bar Control Panel
  • Once Control Panel opens, type in the search bar File Explorer Options
  • In the General tab, under the Privacy section, press the Clear button

This should have resolved the crashing issue. We would highly recommend installing Windows Updates when similar issues occur in Windows 10.
