    Browse for Folder menu is stuck

    Hi, so this issue actually occurs within all of my programs, so I think it has something to do with the protocol itself
    Whenever I click something that asks for a folder and it opens the "Browse for Folder" menu, this happens Browse for Folder menu is stuck-capture-png and no matter if I try to refresh it by F5, right click and refresh, collapse and expand the desktop folder, it doesn't change anything and this is happening with all of my programs that use this window... any ideas?

    Re: Browse for Folder menu is stuck

    I don't recall ever seeing a Browse for Folder dialog box. When did that start?

    I can find nothing to explain this, other than how to program code to create that box. Since I am not a programmer, that sure does not help me - or help me help you.

    I might suggest opening an elevated (admin) command prompt and entering, sfc /scannow then press Enter (not the space after the c). If you get errors that SFC (system file checker) cannot fix, see these instructions.

    I ran SFC when the issue started to occur and it said that there was no issues. I'll run it again just in case but I don't think there are any issues.

    What programs?
    Windows programs or third parties?
    Any examples?

    Well, the one it's happening on at the moment is UPlay. Which is really annoying since I have limited C: drive space, but I have a 2TB external drive practically empty.

    Another program is BackBlaze as I specify a folder to store temporary files in.

    I have limited C: drive space
    How limited? Have you cleaned out the clutter? Have you uninstalled programs from C and reinstalled them on D? Have you moved your Documents and temp file locations to D and told Windows to use them as the new defaults?

    I have 106 GB free on drive C as opposed to my external where I have 938 GB free.

    Re: Browse for Folder menu is stuck

    Well, I guess even a 4TB drive has "limited space" but 106GB free is not what I imagined when you said your C drive has limited space.

    Sorry, but I don't know why this error occurs. Busy day but I will do some more digging when I get a chance.

    Merry Christmas!

    Are you using some special programs to delete files and traces? Or to fix registry issues?

    (UPlay works here)

    Well, I'm using IOBit's Advanced System Care, latest version. That's about it.

    Left-click on Start, type directly msconfig, press enter.
    Is the radio button on normal startup?

    Try this command from an elevated command prompt:
    dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
    Do you get my same result?
    Code:
    C:\>dism /online /cleanup-image /checkhealth
    
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool
    Version: 10.0.14393.0

    No component store corruption detected.
    The operation completed successfully.
