Windows 11 is still in the development stage and even after the official release in October 2021, it will take a while until all bugs are eliminated!
1.) ... Quad File Explorer hangs on Windows 11!
|(Image-1) Always keep the Quad File Explorer up-to-date on Windows 11!|
The “Quad File Explorer” also known as Q-Dir. If Q-Dir is stuck or unresponsive on Windows 11, there are several possible reasons. Here are some steps you can take to fix the problem:
Windows 11 may require more resources than your computer provides. Make sure your computer meets the Windows 11 system requirements and that no other resource-intensive applications are running at the same time.
Make sure you are using the latest version of Q-Dir. Developers often release updates to fix problems.
Conflicts with other applications:
Other installed applications may cause conflicts with Q-Dir. Check if the problem persists by running Q-Dir in Safe Mode (without third-party startup items and services).
Bad files or folders:
A faulty file or folder system can cause Q-Dir to stop responding. Try opening the program in a different folder to see if the problem persists.
Outdated or faulty drivers can cause problems. Update your graphics drivers and other essential drivers to the latest versions.
Antivirus and security software:
Sometimes security programs can prevent Q-Dir from working properly. Check your security software settings and make sure Q-Dir is classified as a trusted application.
System resource monitoring:
Monitor system resources using Task Manager if Q-Dir stops responding. You may be able to determine whether a specific process or service is the cause.
Start in Safe Mode:
Try starting Windows in Safe Mode and check if Q-Dir works fine. If this is the case, there could be a conflict with third-party software or drivers.
User Profile Settings:
There may be issues with the settings in your user profile. If necessary, create a new user profile and try again.
Restore or reinstall:
If all else fails, you can try uninstalling and reinstalling Q-Dir or resetting Windows to a previous restore point.
Before taking any drastic steps, I recommend you try some of the troubleshooting steps mentioned above. Note that there may be different solutions depending on the cause of the problem.
