Windows 10: Restart Explorer Context Menu - Add in Windows 10
Just had the same problem. Restart_Explorer.bat kept moving to SysWOW64 folder. I give up for now.
If you just recently installed a Windows Update or updated to a new build of Windows 10, then you may need to re-add the .bat file to the System32 folder again.
Sometimes an update or new build may reset items back to default.
Resetting Windows will of course remove it from System32 as well.

Thank you JeWgleNij, and welcome to Ten Forums.
The command doesn't get added when merged though.
Then I lay out ready registry file.This method is not only a conductor but resets and clears the cache icon.

Thank you for the idea JeWgIeNiJ. I don't want to include the part to clear the icon cache since that's already a separate tutorial, and this tutorial is more for just restarting explorer itself instead.
I have updated the tutorial to have a cascading "Restart Explorer" context menu that includes the "Restart Explorer" now and "Restart Explorer w/ Pause" items so folks can have a choice.
