    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."

    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!".

    Pulling Horse An out-of-towner drove his car into a ditch in a desolated area. Luckily, a local farmer came to help his with his big strong horse named Buddy. He hitched Buddy up to the car and yelled, "Pull, Nellie, Pull!", but Buddy didn't move. Then the farmer hollered, "Pull, Buster, pull!", but buddy didn't respond. Once more the farmer commanded, "Pull, Coco, pull!", still nothing. Then the farmer nonchalantly said, "Pull, Buddy, pull!" and the horse easily dragged the car out of the ditch. The motorist was most appreciative and very curious. He asked the farmer why he called his horse by the wrong name three times. The farmer said: "Oh, Buddy is blind and if he thought he was the only one pulling; he wouldn't even try!"

    Carlos Says Carlos Escobar was a programmer at Sierra Online in the late 80s and early 90s. He worked on many games. He was a wonderful, warm, witty, droll, and dry individual who entertained all around him. He was also kind, always coming up with some new way to help those who needed help. He came up with so many funny lines that fellow programmer Robert Lindsley created a batch file that many of us ran in our autoexec.bat files. It would display a random quote from Carlos every time we restarted our computers (which was quite often back in those days!). There’s a fine line between my friends… and the people I get stuck working with. I’m sorry I’m doing such a poor job of pretending I’m listening. He is a legend... in his own mind. I like you just as much today as I did yesterday. You must have mistaken me for someone who cares. I’m mildly impressed. Don’t get married. Don’t have kids! As long as your code has lots of white space and comments.... who cares if it works When I say ‘we’ I’m really talking about you. Just wedge it. I think the problem is between the chair and the keyboard. Happy thoughts, phony smile. Why be nice when you can be honest? It’s not what you say or do… it’s your timing that counts. I have all day to be rude… but I’d rather wait until just the right moment. Let me apologize in advance for tomorrow’s rudeness. Let me get this right, you just said, ‘Blah, blah, blah, blah’? It doesn’t get any better than this. I treat you like I treat everyone else… like dirt. I will give it the attention it deserves. I’m not trying to save the world… but maybe I should — it would be easier. This is not rocket science. This is not brain surgery. He’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. Did you ride the short bus to school? What colour is the sky in your world? I think this Internet thing is gonna take off. It could be worse; it could be me. You’re full of useless information. I can almost call you a friend. You’re more full of shit than a Christmas goose. I’m not asking for much. Good enough for who it’s for. You must have mistaken me for someone who cares. Feel free to tell me all about it; not that I’m listening. Did you ever think it might just be you? It’s not magic, it’s just code! I’ve seen it all; I’ve done it all. I just can’t remember it all. Do you want some cheese with that whine? Take your time… I have all day. Don’t be alarmed if I happen to snore while you’re talking. Let me connect you with someone who cares. Which part of read-only don’t you understand!? We came very close to being friends. If I had feelings, they’d be hurt. I like you just as much today as I did yesterday. If I never see you again, it’ll be too soon. Let’s make a deal: you continue talking and I’ll continue pretending to listen. I’m sorry, did I say that out loud?” Don’t let me slow down your search for someone who cares. There’s a fine line between my friends and the people I’m stuck working with. You know, it’s always something. There’s a fine line between a bug and sloppy code. You know you’re lost if you must make a printout. That’s the start of a good idea!” I’m not grouchy! I just expect perfection. What’s a gig between friends? If I want any more shit from you, I’ll squeeze your head. If I want your opinion, I’ll give it to you. Hold on while I put on my ‘Give-a-Damn’ face. Exactly which orifice would you like me to pull that miracle out of?! Don’t let the door hit you on the way to Development! To know me is to hate me. There are now 95 employees. That makes 80 that I don’t know, nor care to know! I don’t get paid nearly enough to care. Great. I’ll put everything else aside and focus on your problem. A fool and his money soon become my close personal friends. Your money and my pocket are a match made in heaven. Even freeware is written better than that! I share my bitterness with everyone! Someday I’ll work with professionals; until then, I’m stuck with you! What good are friends if I can’t take advantage of them? I never knew what real happiness was until I got married… and then it was too late! Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t make it wrong.

    Considering Wicked Cop Two men are driving through London when they get pulled over by a cop. The cop walks up and taps on the window with his stick. The driver rolls down the window and WHACK, the officer smacks him in the head with the stick. The driver asks, "What the hell was that for?". The officer answers, "You're in London son. When we pull you over, you better have your license ready when we get to your car." The driver says, "I'm sorry, Officer, I'm not from around here." The officer does a check on the driver's license, and he's O.K... He gives the man his license back, walks around to the passenger side and taps on the window. The passenger rolls down the window and WHACK, the officer smacks him on the head with the stick. The passenger asks, "What'd you do that for?" The officer says, "Just making your wish come true." The passenger asks, "Making what wish come true?" The officer says: "I know that two miles down the road you're gonna say to your friend here, "I wish that a*shole would've tried that sh*t with me!"

    How Dogs Are Better Than Men Dogs do not have problems expressing affection in public. Dogs miss you when you’re gone. Dogs feel guilty when they’ve done something wrong. Dogs admit when they’re jealous. Dogs are very direct about wanting to go out. Dogs do not play games with you, except fetch. And they never laugh at how you throw. You can train a dog. Dogs are easy to buy for. The worst social disease you can get from dogs is fleas. (Well, truthfully rabies is the worst, but there IS a vaccine for it. And, you get to kill the one that gave it to you!) Dogs understand what “no” means. Dogs mean it when they kiss you.

    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!"

    A Comparison Of Early 21st Century Religious Theory Catholicism -- He who denies himself the most toys wins. Anglican -- They were our toys first. Greek Orthodox -- No, they were OURS first. Polytheism -- There are many toy makers. Evolutionism -- The toys made themselves. Baptist -- Once played, always played. Church of Christ Scientist -- We are the toys. Communism -- Everyone gets the same number of toys and you go straight to hell if we catch you selling yours. Amish -- Toys with batteries are surely a sin. Taoism -- The doll is as important as the dump truck. Hedonism -- To heck with the rulebook. Let’s play! Hinduism -- He who plays with bags of plastic farm animals loses. 7th Day Adventist -- He who plays with his toys on Saturday loses. Church of Christ -- He whose toys make music loses. Calvinist -- Once played, always played. Jehovah’s Witnesses -- He who sells the most toys door-to-door wins. Pentecostalism -- He whose toys can talk wins. Existentialism -- Toys are a figment of your imagination. Confucianism -- Once a toy is dipped in the water it is no longer dry. Non-denominationalism -- We don’t care where the toys came from, let’s just play with them. Atheism-- There is no toy maker. Agnosticism-- It is not possible to know whether toys make a bit of difference. Branch Davidians -- He who dies playing with the biggest toys wins. Mormonism -- Every boy can have as many toys as he wants. Voodoo -- Let me borrow that doll for a second. Apathy -- Toys? Why do I need toys? Judaism -- I’m selling toys. You buying?

    Oxford University researchers have discovered the densest element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium (symbol=Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called pillocks. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2 to 6 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganisation in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganisation will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as a critical morass. When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (symbol=Ad), an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium, since it has half as many pillocks but twice as many morons.
