Today I was sighing out loud at work when the window$ explorer crashed once more unexpectedly… My colleague laughed and then told me about something I took for a joke at first… He said there was a an option in the window$ explorer which would stop it from crashing. I laughed out and inquired how that option was supposed to be named? The “Please don’t crash” button?
But he was actually being serious and pointed me to the respective option. He told me that he encountered the very same problem of a regularly crashing explorer until he discovered this option. I shook my head… Not only is there an option having the explorer crash regularly if not activated, it also is deactivated by default!
If you’re having the same problems under vi$ta, here’s what you need to do:
- Open up the explorer
- Go to the folder options
- Select the “View” tab
- Under “Advanced settings” activate “Launch folder windows in a separate process”
