Hotkeys/Shortcuts to Close Explorer.Exe
Posted on 2006-04-27
Hi, thanks in advance for your help.
My computer freezes from time to time (actually quite often nowadays) despite running defrags and other utilities. I find that if I go to the Windows Task Manager -> Processes tab, I can close explorer.exe and that allows things to unfreeze and I don't have to restart my computer.
However sometimes my pc freezes so badly that I cannot even open the Windows Task Manager. In which case I am wondering if there are a set of HotKey buttons I can press to close explorer.exe directly. Is there such a hotkey built-in to Windows? Or if not, is there a way I can create this?
I am using Windows XP Home Edition.
Thanks for your thoughts and suggestions.
