  • Hi,

    Based on my knowledge, firstly, please test the issue again in Safe Mode.

    If the issue does not occur in Safe Mode, please use ShellExView to disable related extensions of Windows Explorer in Normal Mode and see how it works:

    1) Please download

    Note: The third-party product discussed here is manufactured by a company that is independent of Microsoft. We make no warranty, implied or otherwise, regarding this product's performance or reliability.

    2) Extract the download file and double-click the "shexview.exe" file. It will scan the registry for all the shell extensions.

    3) Select all the non-Microsoft extensions in pink by press "Ctrl" in the keyboard.

    4) Click the "Disable Selected Items" on the toolbar and click Yes.

    5) Restart your computer and check if the issue is resolved.

    Hope this helps.
