Multiple instances of explorer.exe


Recommended Posts

Hello Devs,

Would like to make it known that whenever the shell command "Open Containing Folder" is used, multiple instances of explorer.exe are left open, eating up some memory.

The Task Manager entries are;

C:\Windows\explorer.exe /factory,{75dff2b7-6936-4c06-a8bb-676a7b00b24b} -Embedding

Not sure if there's something "µ can do", or if it's a problem for Microsoft.

But now you know. :)

Thanks for all your great work, µTorrent is the Best !


P.S. - Some have said "Launch folder windows in separate process" in "Folder Options" can cause/correct this. I've tried both settings and the processes remain.
