XYplorer hang frequently when right-click on folder

This does not happen in the past (at least I haven't encountered this before) and now (using 23.00.0200), this happens frequently.

from what I have tested, if I right click on a file first, the context menu is displayed properly. And then right-click on a folder has no problem (i.e. the context menu can be displayed too).

But if the first right-click since XYplorer is started is done on a folder, then it hangs

The reason is normaly some context menu handler.
Use the Nirsoft tool ShellExView and disable all non-Microsoft context menu extensions first.
If all is fine start to enable the rest one by one and test.

First do this and then try it again:

Code: Select all

Configuration | General | Menus, Mouse, Usability | Context Menus | [x] Hide shell extensions from shell context menu
