Explorer.exe

Recommended Posts

Guest Mangix

explorer.exe is the program made by microsoft that lets you browse folders, click on icons, and basically everything. it should NEVER EVER be terminated.

 

as for tray notifications cache, that just clears the cache of tray notofications. meaning that it clears every record of tray notifications or something like that.

explorer.exe is the Windows Program Manager or Windows Explorer. It manages the Windows Graphical Shell including the Start menu, taskbar, desktop, and File Manager. By removing this process the graphical interface for Windows will disappear.

Anyone actually tried killing it? It freezes just like any other application. It has to killed off. Often it will come back automatically, or you can restart it via Task Manager.

That definition is the exact same one that is in my first post. I don't know why 7 days later mangix decided to debate it, but whatever.

Nah, he has shown he is a total moron. He should repack the computer and ship it back for a refund. Reason "Too effing stupid to own a computer."

 

Anyone can find it in Task Manager. It's right there under File as New Task (Run...)
