[SOLVED] : File Explorer is crashing on right click Windows 10 | Windows 8 | Windows 7 | Windows XP
When you right click on File Explorer sidebar with Windows Explorer / File Explorer crashes.
Mostly its caused by some third-party application or software installed having context menu integrated to the Windows Context menu or normally called Right-Click menu.
In my case it was SpyBot Search & Destroy.
Go to System Integration Tab and "Uninstall" Windows Explorer Integration (64b
Use third-party software like ShellExView to remove additional programs from Windows Context menu:
1. Download ShellExView on your computer and Extract the downloaded zip file anywhere.
2. Run ShellExView and select Options > Hide All Microsoft Extensions
Select all programs you don't require and disable.
If that doesn't work disable all programs other than Microsoft.
Let us know in comments if that worked for you.
