    Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.

    Go to Piriform's website, and download the free version on the left. Click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version. You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.

    After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.

    Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):

    Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot. You will see the following prompt:

    Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard

    Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the Add Reply button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Send below the Reply box.

    Thanks to all. I finally got my File Explorer operating normally so I'll mark this thread solved.

    It apparently was some sort of corruption in the W10 installation. I did a repair using the Win Defender "Fresh Start" option. Now I'll reinstall all the hardware that I removed during my diagnosis and reinstall the MSFT Office and other apps removed by the fresh start procedure.Click image for larger version.
