I am using Windows 11 Home (10.0.22000 Build 22000) and whenever I try to open a Word Document located in my OneDrive folder in File Explorer, the File Explorer is "not responding" and results in the File Explorer crashing and rebooting. This happens every time, without fail. I tried rebooting File Explorer on Task Manager, no fix. Restart computer, no fix. This has been happening since I downloaded Windows 11. Issue is fixed when I disable the Preview Pane.

 

I'd love to know if others are also facing this issue.
