    How to restart Explorer.exe to fix a frozen desktop Start Menu, File Explorer and more on Windows 10 If taskbar, Start menu, or File Explorer stop responding, then try restarting the Windows Explorer process On Windows 10, "Windows Explorer" (Explorer.exe) is the process responsible for starting and displaying most of the user interface (UI), including the desktop, taskbar, Action Center, Start menu, and File Explorer. Usually, the process can work without a glitch for a long time, but eventually one or more of its elements could break causing Windows 10 to freeze or stop responding entirely, leaving you unable to open the Start menu or interact with the taskbar or other experiences. When this occurs, most users will just reach for the power button to fix the problem, but it could be an issue that you may be able to resolve by simply restarting the process without the risk of losing unsaved changes. In this Windows 10 guide, we'll walk you through several ways to quickly restart the Explorer.exe process to fix UI problems. Important: Although many of the UI problems can happen because of issues with the Windows Explorer process, it can also be a graphics driver related problem, including when the screen flashes or flickers. How to reset Explorer.exe using Task Manager On Windows 10, you can reset the Windows Explorer process in at least two different ways using Task Manager. Restarting Explorer using Processes tab To restart Explorer.exe with the Processes tab to fix common UI issues on Windows 10, use these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. Quick tip: There's not just one way to open Task Manager, you can access the experience in various ways. For example, through the Ctrl + Alt + Del keyboard shortcut, power user menu (Windows key + X keyboard shortcut ), searching for the app in the Start menu, and more. However, if you're having problems with the UI, the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut is perhaps the most direct way to the experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click on the Processes tab. Under the "Windows processes" section, select the Windows Explorer process. Click the Restart button on the bottom-right corner. Once you complete the steps, the process will terminate and restart automatically, fixing common problems, such as when the Start menu won't open or you can't interact with the taskbar or File Explorer. Restarting Explorer using Details tab To restart Explorer.exe with the Details tab to fix common UI issues on Windows 10, use these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click on the Details tab. Right-click the explorer.exe process and select the End task option. Click the End process button. Click the File menu, and select the Run new task option. Type the following command to restart the process and click the OK button: explorer.exe After you complete the steps, the Explorer.exe restart again hopefully fixing freezes and other issues with the desktop environment. Windows Explorer process changes with the May 2019 Update Starting with the Windows 10 May 2019 Update, the Start menu will appear as a separate StartMenuExperienceHost.exe process to streamline debugging and isolate the feature from possible problems. However, you won't necessarily need to terminate both processes to troubleshoot issues, as ending the Explorer.exe will also automatically reset the new Start process. Just keep in mind that if you end the StartMenuExperienceHost.exe process it won't terminate the Explorer.exe process. Also, unlike Explorer.exe, whether you terminate or restart the process, StartMenuExperienceHost.exe should always start again automatically. In the rare case that the Start menu doesn't start automatically (no pun intended), then you can force it using these steps: Use the Ctrl + Shift + ESC keyboard shortcut to open the Task Manager experience. If you're using the Task Manager in compact mode, click the More details button in the bottom-left corner. Click the File menu, and select the Run new task option. Type the following command and click the OK button: %SystemRoot%\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.StartMenuExperienceHost_cw5n1h2txyewy\StartMenuExperienceHost.exe How to reset Explorer.exe using batch file Alternatively, you can also create a batch file that includes the commands to quickly terminate and restart the Windows Explorer process automatically using these steps: Open Start. Search for Notepad and click the top result to open the app. Copy and paste the following script to the text file: taskkill /f /im explorer.exe start explorer.exe Click the File menu, and select the Save As option. Type a descriptive name with a .bat file extension. Quick tip: It's recommended to save the batch file in the desktop, in case the experience freezes, and you need a quick way to restart the process. Click the Save button. Once you complete the steps, when you're having problems with the taskbar, Start menu, or File Explorer, simply double-click the batch file to reset the Explorer.exe process.

    After the Ark... Long after the Ark had landed and Noah had told all the animals to go forth and multiply, he decided to venture out into the world and see how all the animals were doing. He saw all the animals were thriving...except one pair of snakes, who had not yet reproduced. Noah asked them what was wrong, and the snakes asked Noah to cut down a tree and chop it into sections. Confused, Noah did so, and went away. He returned several weeks later to find the snakes with several little baby’s snakes. Still confused, Noah asked the snakes, "Why did you need me to cut down a tree for you to reproduce?" The snakes replied, "We're adders; we can't multiply without logs."

    DARWIN POST (Last Tuesday) Woman saves herself in Crocodile attack using a small Walking Stick. This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a walking stick against a fierce predator. Here is her story in her own words: "While out walking along the edge of a creek just outside of our house in Darwin, with my soon to be ex-husband discussing our property settlement, kids and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 5 metre crocodile which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging at us very fast with its large jaws wide open. The Croc must have been protecting her young and her home because she was extremely aggressive. If I had not had my little $5 dollar Reject Shop walking stick with me, I would not be here today! Just one hard whack to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took.. The 'Croc got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. The amount I saved in lawyer’s fees was really incredible and I got the lot.

    Sad Man A man in a bar saw a friend at a table, drinking by himself. Approaching the friend he commented, "You look terrible. What's the problem?". "My mother died in June", he said, "and left me $10,000". "Gee, that's tough", he replied. "Then in July", the friend continued, "My father died, leaving me $50,000". "Wow. Two parents gone in two months. No wonder you’re depressed". "And last month my aunt died, and left me $15,000". "Three close family members lost in three months?" "How sad", he replied. "Then this month", continued the friend, "Nothing!".

    Three guys die and go to heaven The first one goes up to St. Peter who says, "I have only one question before you enter heaven: were you faithful to your wife?" The guy answers, "Yes, I never even looked at another woman." St. Peter tells him: "See that Rolls Royce Sweptail over there? That's your car to drive while you're in heaven". The second guy gets the same question, and answers: "Once I strayed, but I confessed to my wife and she forgave me, and we worked it out." St. Peter tells him: "See that new Buick Luxury Car over there? That's your car to use in heaven". The third guy answers the same question: "I have to admit, I chased every bit of tail I could, and was with a lot of women." St. Peter says, "OK, but you were basically a good guy, so that old three-wheel Reliant Robin car over there is yours to use while You’re in heaven." The three guys go off on their separate ways. A few weeks later, #2 and #3 are driving along in the Buick when they see #1's Rolls Royce Sweptail parked outside of a bar. They stop and go into the bar, and find #1 with empty bottles all around him, slumped with his face in his hands on the counter. They come up to him and #2 says: "Bud, what could possibly be so bad - you're in heaven, you drive a Rolls Royce Sweptail, and everything is great!" He says: "I saw my wife today!" The other 2 reply, "That's great! So, what's the problem?" He answers: "She was riding a bicycle!"

    Talking Dog A young Southern boy goes off to college, but about 1/3 way through the first semester, he has foolishly squandered what money his parents had given him for school. Then he gets an idea. He calls his Redneck father. “Dad,” he says, “you won’t believe the wonders that modern education is coming up with! Why, they actually have a program here that will teach Fido how to talk!” “That’s absolutely amazing!” his father says. “How do I get him in that program?” “Just send him down here with $1000,” the boy says, “I’ll get him into the course.” So, his father sends the dog and the $1000. About 2/3 way through the semester, the money runs out. The boy calls his father again. “So, how’s Fido doing, son?” his father asks. “Awesome, dad, he’s talking up a storm,” he says, “but you just won’t believe this, they’ve had such good results with this program, that they’ve implemented a new one to teach the animals how to READ!” “READ!?” says his father, “No kidding! What do I have to do to get him in that program?” “Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.” His father sends the money. The boy has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out that the dog can neither talk nor read. So, he shoots the dog. When he gets home, his father is all excited… “Where’s Fido? I just can’t wait to see him talk and read something!” “Dad,” the boy says, I have some grim news. This morning, when I got out of the shower, Fido was in the living room kicking back in the recliner, reading the morning paper, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked: “Is your daddy still cheating on your mama and messing’ around with that cute little redhead next door?” The father says, “where is that damn dog, I am going to SHOOT him”. “I shot the dog already, Dad! I sure did”

    She can't tell 'em apart A blonde bought two horses and could never remember which was which. A neighbour suggested that she cut off the tail of one horse, which worked great until the other horse got his tail caught in a bush. The second horse's tail tore in the same place and looked exactly like the other horse's tail. Our blonde friend was stuck again. The neighbour then suggested that she notch the ear of one horse, which worked fine until the other horse caught his ear on a barbed wire fence. Once again, our blonde friend couldn't tell the two horses apart. The neighbour then suggested that she measure the horses for height. When she did that, the blonde was very pleased to find that the white horse was 2 inches taller than the black one.

    Heart warming A husband and wife who worked for the circus went to an adoption agency. The social worker raised doubts about their suitability. The couple then produced photos of their 50-foot motor home, which was clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery. The social worker then raised concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care. "We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills." Then the social worker expressed concern about a child being raised in a circus environment. "Our nanny will be a certified expert in paediatric care, welfare, and diet." The social worker was finally satisfied and asked, "What age of child are you hoping to adopt?" "It doesn't really matter ...... as long as the kid fits in the cannon."

    The parrot A lady, goes into a pet store and sees a large, beautiful parrot. She notices that the price tag was only fifty dollars. Puzzled, she asks the proprietor why such a beautiful bird was only fifty dollars. He replied that the bird used to live in a brothel and its language was rude, hence the low fifty-dollar price. The woman was so enamoured by the bird's beauty that she bought it and took it home. She put the cage on the table and uncovered it. The bird looks around and says, 'New house, new madam'. The woman thought the language wasn't so bad and she could live with that. Half an hour later her two daughters came in for a visit. The bird looked around and said. 'New house, new madam, new girls". The woman thought that was not too bad. Later that afternoon the woman's husband arrived home from work. The bird looks around, recognise the man from the brothel and says. 'Hi Bill’……
