    Windows 10 Home

    Explorer crash on Windows 10 Home when right-clicking in left pane.

    When Windows Explorer is open, if I right-click on anything in the left-pane, Explorer crashes and re-starts.

    I've googled, and tried using NirSoft's ShellFix, disabled the most common issues googling resulted in:
    #1 Remove Nvidia context-menu and for desktop right-click.
    #2 Remove Spybot Search & Destroy context-menu.
    #3 Remove Nvidia "nvshext.dll" (not found after using ShellFix)

    None of these resulted in a fix at all. I've tried booting in safe mode, the same problem exists. I can right-click on file and folders in the right pane of Explorer, but right-clicking in the left pane, whether folder or drive. Explorer still crashes.

    I found a Microsoft page regarding a similar issue, and to be on the safe side, I tried that. Still doing the same thing.

    This is really driving me crazy, since I use portable backup drives to re-install my games onto the system but it's pretty hard to drag and drop when you can't have a second Explorer pane open.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Hello, in ShellexView, Have you also explored 32 bit options (see Options, Show 32-bit...). This reveals more.

    You might learn more by inspecting the event log or Reliability History (just type 'reli' into the cortana search bar)
