How to Restart the Windows Explorer

Post by Admin on Mon Dec 22, 2014 6:24 am

“ Error: Windows Explorer has stopped working “ is one of the most common errors faced by windows users. The error mainly occurs when a PC’s drivers are not up to date or in rare cases due to a malware infection.

When this error occurs, your PC will usually freeze for some time and then the windows explorer might restart automatically. But in some cases the windows explorer will not restart automatically by itself and you will have to restart your PC in order to fix this error. Adding to this, in rare cases if you click on the cancel button, the windows explorer will vanish along with the taskbar and the desktop. However you will be able to toggle between all the open program windows.

Generally in such a situation, one can easily work on any of the programs that were open, but if the windows explorer does not appear by itself, the last resort would be to restart the PC in order to fix this issue.

Fortunately, there is no need of restarting windows in order to fix this error as the windows explorer can be closed and restarted from the task manager itself. While most of us are aware that the task manager is a nifty tool for closing programs and services which are not responding, not many are aware of the fact that at the same time the task manager can be also used to start many programs and services.

How to Restart the Windows Explorer

   Step 1: Bring up the Windows task manager by pressing the CTRL + SHIFT + ESC keys.

   Step 2: Select the Applications tab and click on New Task.

   Step 3: Type explorer in the input box and click on OK.

Volila!, the task manager would pop up instantly.
