Windows 10: Can't open File Manager directly on W10 Solved

    Can't open File Manager directly on W10


    Hello,

    Yesterday I couldn't open file manager anymore randomly by pressing the shortcut to File Manager that i've been previously using without any problems.

    I looked on the internet and i tried this solution where you write "Sfc /scannow" in CMD. No problems found.

    Then I realized that i can access my files by pressing on a random folder and access file manager that way.

    Anyone had this problem and how do i fix it?

    What is File Manager ?
    Is it the File Explorer at the taskbar ?

    Hi, not sure what you mean exactly. Double clicking a folder should open explorer (or your default file manager).

    Windows key + E also should open explorer.

    If that is what you meant.......................

    1. Run a thumbnail cache clear and reset

    3. Run a system restore. Pick a date you did NOT have this problem as your restore point.
