Windows 11 - File Explorer Bug

Copper Contributor

Hey everyone,


We have two brandnew Laptops running Windows 11 23H2 Enterprise and we are experiencing an issue, that there is a second overlapping Explorer window inside the one I originally opened (See screenshot below -> I marked the second window in red)


1.) There is no second Explorer process open during this issue

2.) It happens randomly, not everytime I open an explorer window

3.) It is not a graphics bug, as I can click and switch folders in both areas.

4.) You cannot move or drag the overlapping window.

5.) Only happening in W11

6.) Reinstall of OS didn´t change anything, still the same issue.

7.) Only workaround is to completely close Explorer and reopen it (Minimize, Maximize has no effect)


Any advice? Did anyone else experience this issue?
