Tip To Restart Explorer in Windows 8

Posted In Windows - By Techtiplib on Saturday, September 29th, 2012 With No Comments »

Just like with previous versions of Windows, occasionally the desktop interface will freeze up. When this happens, the first thing I do is restart Windows Explorer. Here’s how to do it in Windows 8.

Restart Windows 8 Explorer

From the desktop, right click the Taskbar and select Task Manager to open it. Then select the Details tab, right click on explorer.exe and End Task.

Everything will disappear from the screen – but don’t panic. Task Manager stays open, click File >> Run New Task.
