    Can't open folders, which are pinned down to the taskbar (Explorer)


    I have a problem opening folders that i pinned down in the taskbar.

    When I click a folder nothing happens (with the exception of "this PC"/"Your PC", in which case it actually opens what it should open)
    This problem is limited to Windows Explorer, pinned items for Chrome, Steam and Mozilla Thunderbird work just fine.

    With Cubby open (Cubby.com - Cloud storage, syncing and sharing, with a smile.
    ), pinned folders doesn't work. After close Cubby, pinned folders are working.

    Solution: http://superuser.com/questions/95821.../976515#976515

    I had the same problem and was able to pinpoint the culprit by using the excellent (and free) Shell Extensions Manager by NirSoft. I tried using autoruns from Sysinternals but the latest version as of this writing was very buggy, so I would strongly recommend against using it.Here are the steps which worked for me, and not tied to a specific program like WinCDEmu (although it should also fix it).

    1. Save your work.
    2. Launch shexview.exe
    3. Run taskmgr.exe (Task Manager) and kill all explorer processes (in the "Details" tab).
    4. Disable all extensions in Shell Extensions Manager (select them and choose "Disable selected items")
    5. Run explorer.exe from Task Manager > File > Run new task.
    6. Check if the behavior is fixed. If it is, then continue, otherwise, reenable all extensions previously disabled and continue looking for an alternative solution as this one will not help you.
    7. Enable some extensions starting with those you think are unlikely to cause an issue (in my case it was a "Context menu" extension from Boxifier), and repeat steps 3-6 until you have found the culprit.
    8. When the culprit is found, just leave it disabled and the issue should be solved! You can report the bug to the developer of the responsible app so that they can fix it.

    Solution has worked


    I followed the steps and found out that in my case the problem was caused by a software called Secure Folders. It works fine on Windows 8.1 but not so fine on Windows 10, at least its extension.

    One extra step when launching shexview.exe , we must go to Options and select "Hide All Microsoft Extensions", and only then disable the extensions that are left, of course.

    And if you disable cubby shell extension you can still have cubby running.
