Right clicking causes Windows 10 File Explorer to close

Right clicking causes Windows 10 File Explorer to close

I'm on a Windows 10, Asus UX303U notebook and when I open File Explorer to find a file and then right click to copy, cut, etc. the entire window just closes. How do I fix that?

Just fixed. Disabling smart sync and made all files local fixed the problem in both computers.

I'm not sure how this relates to Dropbox HE?

I am searching for my files in my Dropbox. I guess it could just be a Microsoft thing? Because all of the files are in my Dropbox, I thought the problem is there. I don't know to be honest.

Maybe that makes more sense, now that you mention it, because it only happens on this computer, not my others. Any thoughts on that?

It sounds like its a Microsoft issue - I'd be tempted to post on there forums, especially if the crashing occurs on files outside of the Dropbox folder.

Hey Rodrigo_Cruz, apologies for the tardy reply, are you still experiencing this issue? 
 
Have you been able to replicate on a different location (i.e. outside the Dropbox folder) on this device by any chance? Any detail you could send over will be very helpful. 
 
Thanks in advance for your time & I’ll be awaiting your next message here Rodrigo!

I'm having this same issue with Dropbox with an Asus laptop.  Was there any resolution?
