    The moment you right click on a quick access link in file explorer it crashes.

    Hi, not for me.. you might like to try Shellexview (free) and see if any context menu entry is interfering.

    In Shellexview, hide all MS entries, disable all others, no log off or restart needed.

    Works fine for me.

    Try running "sfc /scannow" from an admin command prompt.

    If that does not work, you could also download the iso, double click on it and run setup.exe to do a "repair upgrade", selecting to keep all files - takes about 30-60 minutes typically. Of course, you should backup any valuable data first.

    Likely this is caused by a third party shell extension. Many of these are not well written and it may have compatibility issues. Do as dalchina suggested.

    Alright so I found out through using Shellexview that its a shell extension or something related to the context menu from code of a program I installed. However finding out which program seems a bit harder to pin point.

    I disabled all entries but MS, issue gone, enable them all 1 by 1 or per two, issue gone, log off, log in, issue back.

    So? REsult nothing. I must log off and on each time to really test this.

    Hi, unusual.. you can adopt a binary chop approach when enabling extensions to reduce the number of attempts needed.

    Of course this is also more difficult if there's more than one..

    I found the culprit

    1. DesktopContext Class
    2. NvAppShExt Class
    3. NVIDIA CPL Context Menu Extension
    4. OpenGLShExt Class
    Its one of these but I don't bother further cause I don't think I need any of these enabled lol!

    So this is solved. Thank you.
