Windows 11 Right click context menu crashes File explorer

New Contributor

When I give a copy command from context menu by right click on any folder and then I right click on destination folder to open context menu so that I can paste but it results into FILE EXPLORER crash.

Here is the video recording


If I give copy past command by short cut e.g. ctrl+c & ctrl+p then everything works fine.

@iainsw47 It appeared to me a bug in .Net runtime, But I don't know where to report other then this community site.

I was able to fix this issue with the right click file explorer crash by turning off "context menu" items. I used shexview, run shexview, in the options, disable all microsoft so it will only show the 3rd party extensions. Disable "context menu" items and reboot. That should fix the issue. I was able to go back and turn most of my context menu items back on after and Windows 11 is fixed now!

@RobertS1963 Hey Man, Thanks for the tip. It worked. I don't know which third party extension was causing problem but after disabling all the third party extensions Copy paste is now working.
