    To make this more interesting...
    After several explorer kill processes trying to replicate the issue from powershell, I now also get a black screen when I end the eplorer task from the windows task manager, exactly as it should work?

    It seems to depend on what apps you have open and whether they are minimised when you kill explorer. I have several open, maximised or in windows (Task Manager, IE, a command or Powershell prompt, etc.). These are what remain visible and useable.

    Yes, Windows explorer will stay open if there are apps open, even if explorere is ended in the task manager. Close all apps or close the apps after you have ended the process in taskmanager, and you should get a black screen with task manager open only.

    You can then restart explorer.

    Its a hidden folder in your user folder. Slect view, and tick the hidden items checkbox

    Something similar to the image below

    P.S. Bree, I also appreciated your input, but just for my preference, I liked the command line solution.
