Frozen window in windows explorer
« on: February 08, 2020, 04:41 PM »
Windows 10 home 64
I don't know exactly how I arrive the situation.
I can't move that window
I can't click anywhere in that window
Obviously i can't close, minimize or maximize that window.

You can open other windows folder and goes well, but that ones you can do nothing
Through the task administrator if you close the folder don't obey, we need reiniate the windows explorer to make that problematic window dissappear.

What mistery is this  ?

Generally speaking:
Restarting Explorer is a workaround. And a work-around is by definition not a solution. Only when you feel generous, you could consider it a part of the solution.

@Contro:
Unless you can clearly describe the steps you took to get in trouble, and when repeating these steps you get into the same trouble again, then you can ask a question and likely get an answer that makes the problem go away. Mention anything less? Your guess is as good as mine.

yeap. That's the point. Even tomos agreed for the ocassion.
Unfortunately I haven't all data.
It was during all my moves with excel 2010, the windows explorer and associated management. It's all I can say.

So in response I expect answer with the same problem explained according to people with much observation attitude than me.

 :-* :P

P.D. Am I the only one that have this little problem sometimes ?
