If this happens to you, disable the "Launch folder windows in a separate process" option in File Explorer -> Folder Options.
- Click on the File Explorer icon on the Task Bar.
- Click the File menu at the top and select "Change folder search options".
- Click on the View tab and scroll down to "Launch folder windows in a separate process".
- Uncheck the option (as shown). Click the OK button to save.
On a side note, Microsoft support has suggested making sure system files are not corrupted. It did not work for me but it may may for you.
- In "Search the web and Windows" on the Task Bar, type in Command Prompt.
- Right click Command Prompt and select "Run as administrator". Alternately type Windows-X (hold the Windows key and type the X key) to display the power menu and select the Admin option for command line or PowerShell.
- In the Command Prompt (or PowerShell if selected) window, type the following command:
dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealthThe command will take some time. Wait for it to finish before continuing. The command cleans up the offline image using Microsoft online sources.
- Now type the following command in the window:
sfc /scannowThe command will take some time to complete. Allow it to finish.
