How to troubleshoot problems in Windows 10 by restarting explorer exe


We show you how to solve some problems that arise in Windows 10 by restarting the explorer exe process in a few seconds

Windows, like the rest of operating systems , can sometimes face serious problems that directly affect users, bugs that can even block and disable the system completely, at least at that moment.

One of the most common solutions, if necessary, is restart the computer , something that works positively on more occasions than we might think. In fact, this is usually the first exit when some component of the system fails , or when we detect that Windows is not doing well for some reason. However, this is a solution that is not always effective, so we must make other determinations.

For example, if such a restart does not solve the problem in Windows 10 , another thing we can try to restart Explorer.exe , since this is the process responsible for displaying most of the user interface elements in the operating system, where it is included the Start menu , the taskbar, the Activity Center , etc. Therefore and due to its importance, here we are going to show you how we can restart Explorer.exe in Windows 10.

In fact we have two different methods to carry out this task , something we can do, either from the Task Manager , or from the Command Prompt itself. Thus, to restart Explorer.exe from the Task Manager, the first thing we will do is access it with administrator rights and we are located in the tab called “Processes”, where we look for the element Windows Explorer .

Restart Windows 10 Explorer.exe by following these steps

Once here, we select it and click on the Restart in the lower right part of the window, so the taskbar will disappear for a moment, but will appear again in a few seconds. However, if we cannot access the Task Manager or prefer to use the Command Prompt to restart Explorer.exe, we can also do it.

To do this, the first thing will be to open the Command Prompt application with administrator rights and execute the following command to remove Explorer.exe:

“taskkill / f / im explorer.exe”

Then, when you execute this command, the taskbar will also disappear, in addition to other elements of the user interface , but they will appear again when we start Explorer.exe again, something we do with the command:

"start explorer.exe"

Thus, when we execute this order, the interface elements that disappeared previously will appear on the screen . At the same time you have to keep in mind that restarting Explorer.exe is not always something that is done to solve a certain problem in Windows , since it is also useful when we make some changes on the system that require the user to log out and log back in, something that can simply be done with these steps described equally.

At the same time, if we see that certain elements do not appear on the screen or do not load when we start the desktop , for example, the search bar , restarting this process can force them to appear again, so this is something that can be useful in various circumstances.
