Maybe this belongs on another site... but I was just wondering if anyone knows why windows explorer sometimes decides to go into the "not responding" state.
This isn't a huge deal as I can just open another file explorer and kill the other process... but I am just curious as to the likely cause.
The weird thing is that this seems to be totally random. I cannot pinpoint an action that causes this.
Using Task Manager:
I tried "Debug", which opens visual studio, but it just shows the same performance info you see in task manager --- just for the individual process.
I tried "Analyze Wait Chain", and this tells me the thread numbers, but nothing more.
I looked in services and there are none associated with the PID.
