im looking for a program to reset just explorer.exe. i found a way to do it manually but it takes a little time. you open the start menu and ctrl shift right click the white space and select exit explorer and then you have to open it again with the task manager. i just want to know if anybody knows of a program that will function as a simple restart button for explorer.exe

Make a .bat file called KILL EXPLORER OR WHATEVER.bat and enter this text
@echo off taskkill /f /im explorer.exe sleep 4 start explorer.exe
Then make yourself a .reg file called KILL EXPLORER OR WHATEVER.reg
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Restart Explorer] @="Kill Explorer or whatever you want here to show in context menu" "Icon"="A:\\optional\\path to add\\an.ico" "Position"="Top" [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\Background\shell\Restart Explorer\command] @="The:\\path\\to your\\KILL EXPLORER.BAT"
