Win 11 File Explorer crashes when I click with right mouse button on a folder

New Contributor



What I experienced from the first Win11 release for today (22000.795):

1. Open File Explorer (c:\)
2. Select a folder with left click
3. Click with right mouse button to access Tortoise SVN menus
4. Explorer crashes and restarts... :(

I can avoid this with pushing the "Local popup menu button" on keyboard.
That can opens the local menu.
But with the mouse right clicking the Explorer crashes. :(


Does anybody experience same thing?

Best regards

Suggest you to run System File Checker scan:

1. Search for 'command prompt' using Cortana or Windows Search.

2. From results, right click on Command Prompt and select Run as administrator.

3. Type sfc /scannow command and press Enter key.

4. Let the command complete and then reboot the machine.

If issue still persists, perform clean boot:

Dear Kapil!

After I wrote this post, I got a new Windows Update (2022-07).
I executed it, and I checked it for more days.

Now it's: 22000.832
As I see the "developer guys" fixed this problem, because after the restart I never got the same problem.

The local menu is different (bigger, and most of the functions are missing - like SendTo).
But when I push the local menu button on the external keyboard, I get the original local menu (with SendTo, and other things (associate).
And as I see that the last item in the bigger local menu opens the original.
So it seems to be good!
You can close this ticket. Thank you for everything!

Best regards
