Many people often use "fast reboot", i.e., restart Windows Explorer. How to do it quickly, without unnecessary clicks and without having to reboot? Down here is a manual with the simplest way to do this.

Instructions

First thing we need to create a batch file (.cmd) to restart Explorer, open the Start → Accessories → Run or use a keyboard shortcut Win + R. In the window write:

notepad d:\rexplorer.cmd

Note: Path :d can be replaced by desired location.

Run

You can see an empty Notepad window, paste the following into it and save:

@echo off

taskkill /IM explorer.exe /F

start explorer.exe
rexplorer

Next, create a shortcut (click on the desktop → New → Shortcut) in the window, write the path to the file rexplorer.cmd:

Create Shortcut

Give the name of the new shortcut:

Create Shortcut 2

Now the shortcut is created, at startup Windows Explorer will be re-launched. This manual will be useful for users who often "play" with system files, replacing them with modified ones. Then restart the Windows shell or reboot.
