Problems with File Explorer can also be due to software problems, bugs, or incompatibilities with other programs. In such cases, updates or reinstallations may be necessary.
Sometimes problems with gap settings can be due to user error. For example, if columns are accidentally moved or hidden, the desired information cannot be displayed.
