If QuickBooks File Doctor isn't working on your Windows 10, you can try the following steps to fix the issue:

Run as Administrator: Right-click the QuickBooks File Doctor, and select 'Run as administrator'. This can help bypass certain permission issues.
Disable Antivirus Temporarily: Sometimes, antivirus software can interfere with the application. Disable it temporarily to see if that resolves the issue.
Install the Latest Windows Updates: Ensure that your Windows 10 is up to date, as compatibility issues might be causing the problem.
Reinstall QuickBooks File Doctor: Uninstall and then reinstall the tool to ensure it's not a corrupt installation causing the problem.
Use the QuickBooks Tool Hub: If File Doctor alone doesn't work, download and use the QuickBooks Tool Hub, which includes File Doctor and other tools to fix common issues.
If these steps don't resolve the problem, you might need to contact QuickBooks support for more specialized assistance.
