Sharepoint – “open in explorer” does not work

This is a SharePoint 2016 system. No matter in what library, clicking on “open with explorer” does nothing – no error, no action. This is a problem for all users (IE11 on win10, mostly, but also on win8.1, server 2012/2008).

Thing is, if we copy the browser address bar and paste it into file explorer, it works, so at least we have a workaround, but then again reauthenticating is required.

With a cleanly setup SharePoint test system, it does not work, either, but at least we get this:


That test system has not seen any patch yet, maybe that is why it is “failing a little less”.

The usual suspects were tried:

  • service “web client” is running at the clients
  • server is added to trusted sites in IE
  • registry settings from New document is saving in local machine instead in library (AuthForwardServerList)

Why Gallery and Music app are unable to read SD card storage while a file explorer can?

I checked my phone after a while (after 3 hours), and I found that all of my photos and songs were not there anymore. I checked my ES file explorer, because by default, I have Google files (which is not a good way to manage files). I saw everything was fine in ES explorer.

I rebooted the phone a couple of times and even pulled out and reinserted my SD card but it didn’t work.

How can the problem be fixed?

Windows 10 explorer crashes on wake from sleep

first post here. Sorry this is long. I am at my wits end! I have been trying to solve this problem on and off for 2 years for Windows 10 (Versions 1607 – 1809).

The Environment: I have 10 PCs, including 1 laptop. Problem persists on all. Graphics cards range from GTX 1050 Ti to GTX 1080 Ti. Motherboards are MSI or ASRock, except for the laptop which is an Acer Aspire VX5-591G.

Memory is G.Skill, Corsair or Kingston HyperX. PCs have either 16GB or 32GB. CPUs are either a I5-8600K, I7-7820X or I7-7900X, with laptop running a 7700HQ.

All PCs are currently running Windows 10 1709, with the latest patches. One of the PCs is a “Test PC” which I’ve tested 1803 and 1809 on. Same Problem.

All PCs are cooled with Corsair products and run Corsair Link, but I’ve also tried NZXT Kraken.

All PCs run Classic Shell / Open Shell for the start menu, but I’ve tried without.

All PCs have 750W – 1200W PSU All PCs boot with either a Samsung Evo or Pro drive (either 960 or 970), and have Seagate NAS drives for data.

The problem When a PC wakes from sleep explorer will do one of two things: 90% of the time explorer will crash when attempting to open file explorer, click on the start menu or attempting to click on the notification area. The screen will go to a solid blue color, task bar disappears and a reboot is required. 1 in 10 the start menu will respond in about 20 seconds, but attempting to do anything else will crash explorer.

I’ve been through literally hundreds of posts over the last two years. replaced hardware, reinstalled Windows dozen of times. Tried at various install points (Like before installing the start menu, or before installing office etc). I’ve been through power settings, and I’ve been through the event logs (I’m seeing the abnormal shutdown event, but nothing for the explorer hang/crash. I’ve been through dozens of versions of display drivers. I’ve tried a plain vanilla Windows 10 install with zero third party applications installed.

It’s driving every one here insane, and some are asking me to take them back to Windows 7.

I’ve not provided a full list of everything I’ve tried. That would make this post a novel.

There are two Windows 7 installs here (on my PC and the Test PC as dual boot scenarios), and a Windows 2012 R2 server. None of these suffer the same problem – it’s solely the Windows 10 installations.

Please feel free to suggest anything, except throwing the computers under a bus. As much as I’d like to, can’t do that 🙂

Would be eternally grateful for any help.

thank you. And Merry Christmas.

External hard drive resets when opening Windows Explorer [on hold]

I have an external hard drive connected to my laptop with USB v3. Whenever I open Windows Explorer, the drive resets, apparently as Windows takes inventory of assets to render the tree of drives, etc.

What is this process that’s occurring, and how can I prevent it?

It’s not a matter of the drive being asleep. I can have a file transfer in progress and it will fail on this event. I run VMware with the data in the external drive (active usage) and the virtual will crash when this happens.

But if I open Windows Explorer to the root of the drive, opening other Explorer instances then seems to have no effect. So I can just open an Explorer window to E:\, and leave it open, and the problem goes away. But if Explorer is open to a subfolder, this beneficial anomaly doesn’t occur.

My best guess at the moment is that if I have a window open to E:\foo, and a new instance of Windows Explorer opens, then it’s scanning the root of all devices, and may by default force a remount. Whereas if E:\ root is already open in another window it recognizes that it doesn’t need a remount.

Is there a forced re-mount of devices when Windows Explorer opens? … unless the device is already recognized in another instance… Does Windows 8.1 Pro have some config setting to change the behavior?


.hidden folders not showing in Windows Explorer

I have a Samsung s5 running Android v6.0.1 and a Samsung s9+ running v8.0.0. Neither are rooted.

When I plug either phone into PC running Windows 8.1, I can’t see any “.hidden” folders on the phones via Windows File Explorer.

Folders that don’t start with a . are visible.

I’ve made sure that the phones are connected in USB “File Transfer Mode”

And that Windows File explorer is configured to show hidden files.

I know I used to be able to see all folders, even the “.hidden” ones on the s5 at least.

I’ve tried clearing the Media Storage app cache, and rebooting both the phone and the PC.

Any other solutions to get access back.

Copying files from my local disk to Google Drive via Windows Explorer uses local disk space to make the copy. How can I clear this temporary data?

I’m using a PC with Windows 10. One way to copy files to Google Drive is to use Windows Explorer. I can copy or drag files from my local harddrive to Google Drive accessed via Windows Explorer. Copying files to Drive in this way is quick, certainly much much faster than directly uploading them to Drive via Chrome. When I copy a file over via Windows Explorer, the process commandeers that storage space on my local disk, but when the copy is complete, the storage space is not automatically freed up. My understanding is that this local storage copy is supposed to automatically clear, but I haven’t witnessed it, nor do I know under what conditions or events it is supposed to clear. So if I copy over 20 gigs to Drive, my C:\ disk will have 20 gigs less space, even once the copy has finished. Of course, I have the original 20 gigs of the files on my disk, and now 20 gigs on Google Drive, but how do I clear these 20 gigs of copy data on my local disk? I’ve tried defragmenting, but it did nothing. Thank you.

And on Microsoft website its mentioned that Service Pack 1 is required for installing internet explorer 10 on windows 7 Please let me know if its possible any how. Thanks
