Windows 10 File Explorer not responding

If you can open folders without issue yet a File Explorer window doesn’t respond, the Quick Access cache may be corrupt.

Open a Command Tool and:

del %AppData%\Microsoft\Windows\Recent\AutomaticDestinations\*


If the problem persists, disable the Quick Access/Home view in File Explorer

1. Open File Explorer, right click on Quick Access and then select Options.

2. Under the General tab, in the Privacy section, uncheck both Show boxes and click Clear.
