    File Explorer Crashing

    Hello, so i am trying to open file explorer on my laptop from the start menu and where it is pinned on the start menu. When i do this, file explorer opens for a couple of seconds and closes on both. When this happens, I also hear the hard drive make a noise inside. I can however access my files through a different dirrectory such a a C:/ shortcut i have on my desktop. I have an Asus GL752. I dont know what is causing this but any help is greatly appreciated.
    Update: so, it only closes when i try to open quick access within file explorer
    Update#2: i fixed it, i had to open file explorer where it didnt open to quick access, go to file, and folder options and clear file explorer history
