    Honestly I don't ever remember my 'explorer.exe' crashing on me with all my 1909 search issues. The only thing I was seeing, besides the search window freezing, were these chronic Runtime Broker crashes in the Reliability Monitor.

    It's possible what you're seeing is unrelated to this 1909 search issue, yet perhaps related to the search process itself in some other way. And is this when you see the 'explorer.exe' crash, after initiating or during the File Explorer searching itself?

    Does your File Explorer search window work at all now post .628. Mine stopped freezing after 18363.628, and these Runtime Broker crashes now absent after .693?

    I saw Runtime Broker crashes before .693 but not now.
    I seldom get File Explorer crash after .693 update.
    The latest happened after e.g. 10 days.

    I wasn't searching in Windows nor searching in File Explorer, but the File Explorer crash happened and I noticed that when my Desktop got refreshed.

    Thanks for validating my own Runtime Broker .693 observations!

    It's not all that uncommon to see these File Explorer crashes with that desktop refresh. For me maybe once every couple months. I guess it depends on how much you're asking of it. I'm not running what you'd call a very stressed out system.

    I meant that when the File Explorer crashes, at the same time desktop refreshes. That's how I notice that File Explorer crashed.

    I have a normal PC and don't put any stress or pressure on it. Before 1909, I did not have any of these crashes

    Maybe the next update in this month, March, will fully fix it?

    If you were not already aware, this might help explain why these two events - the File Explorer window crashing and the Desktop refresh - happen together. The Desktop is actually part of the explorer.exe process. So that's why you'll see those two happen at the same time.

    Reading your comments again I see now you already knew the connection - the Desktop refresh being the tip off. And optimistically speaking, with every monthly update, it has gotten better, so you may see relief for what has already become less frequent.

    For what it's worth, one of the temporary workaround fixes for that 1909 search issue was to kill the explorer.exe process and restart it, and once you do, you'll see any open windows close along with the Desktop and Taskbar getting refreshed. So clearly with Seach inside the explorer.exe process there's some connection.

    Can you explain how to do the third part of your saying "the temporary workaround fixes " ? Thank you.

    You see, still happening. Win 10 1909 and later is totally garbage.

    Here's the tutorial on restarting explorer.exe, one of the "temporary workaround fixes"

    PS That "No, Microsoft hasnít issued a ďWindows 10 update warning"" article is merely about an earlier false claim that a warning had been issued for this update. It does not help you at all.

    Hi guys, I must say after updating to Win 10 2004 that released as RTM on April 17, I have rarely crashed of File Explorer.
