Windows 10 + Right Click on File Explorer crashes the explorer
Heard good/nice things about Windows 10 and brought a grand new ASUS Laptop that came pre-installed with Windows 10. Upgraded it and started using. The interface is userfriendlier than in past, however, there is a nasty bug. It is extremely troubling because Right Click is what you'd mostly do if you plug-in a USB and browse the contents. But the issue is not specific to USB. I cannot capture screenshots, however, if you open File Explorer (Windows Key + E ) and right click anywhere ( on blank space or on any folder ), 8 out of 10 times, the right click action crashes the explorer process of windows and you have to reopen the explorer. Great productivity killer on windows. Cannot find any reason for it, specially, a brand new hardware and upgraded windows 10. Does anyone have a clue or experienced similar?
I voted to close this question since it doesn't belong on stackoverflow.com (since its hardware based, not programming related) To answer your question: My guess is, that it came with some preinstalled apps, which might block the explorer, cause it to crash etc. You could use ShellExView (link) to check which extensions are installed to your explorer and remove them from there. Look for bloatware named apps.
