xyplorer Freezes the windows 10 desktop

Post by PixelDrop »

So this has been happening to me for a while now, and even happens after a fresh re-format.

I use the no-install version of Xyplorer and set it to be the default file manager. [I keep it on the OS drive [C:\Port], I use the no-install version because I sync the Port folder on my workstation to my USB when I need to use my laptop, that way I can use all my portable programs on my laptop without suffering USB I/O speeds on the workstation .]

Some times when I open a folder on my workstation, the entire desktop will freeze up / lockup until after I close the Xyplorer window that was opened.

Dose anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

It only happens when Xyplorer is opened from the desktop, and the system otherwise has no other issues.
If I disable Xyplorer and go back to windows explorer there are no freezes/lock ups.

That XY instance never gets comes back from this state, even after waiting for a few minutes?

What does that mean, starting it from a command prompt doesn't lead to this behavior?

No the desktop stays frozen until I close the XY window no matter how long it is open.

It dose not happen If it is opened from the taskbar, start menu, or a windows explore window such as the, "This PC" folder which always opens as windows explore first.

It only happens when I open a folder on the desktop with XY.

So you double-click a shortcut (*.LNK) to XYplorer when that happens?

No, when I open a normal folder.

Like the user folder for example.

That's why I brought up the fact I use XY as the default file manager in the first post.

Nope, Xy isn't frozen and nothing else is affected besides the user desktop.

Code: Select all

Command Line: "C:\Users\PixelDrop\Desktop\Exports"
