How To Restart A Hanging Computer Without Shutting Down

Hanging computer

Unless the computer is powered by the latest processor  Kaby lake processor  or the computer is in the future and is already running the  AMD Zen processor has not yet been released, then hanging it is something that must have lived. And I'm sure you can get into those nerves when your computer crashes and you need to keep a timer until it is restored to its normal state.

In the worst case, it may require doing a hard reset (i.e., restarting the total) of your computer, and this can be frustrating, especially if you are performing an important task in the PC.

You do not want to reboot, but at the same time, the team is seriously hooked and can not do anything to stop it, may have to wait to stop pendant is your only option.

But how long to wait every time he goes "mode hang." Well, if you're so patient as the prophet - employment, then you could wait the time it takes the suspension process. However, if you do not want to wait or perform a total reset your PC, then this article is for you.

So read on to see how you can restart Windows Explorer, which is the main platform on which Windows applications run.

Steps to Restarting Windows Explorer without Shutting Down

  • Press Control + Alt + Del and the click on task manager or better still, right click on the task barand click on task manager from the list of items.

  • When the task manager opens, click on more details to see a comprehensive list of all processes running on the computer.

  • On the list of all processes, scroll down until you see the process named Windows Explorer.
N.B: I am using Windows 10 for this post, and the first three steps above are the same for Windows 10, 8.1 and 8. If you are running Windows 7 and below, follow the first step to start task manager, then click on the tab called Processes. Then scroll until you see the process named Explorer.
  • After scrolling to see Windows Explorer or Explorer, click to select.
  • After clicking to select, locate restart towards the bottom right of the task manager.

  • Click on restart and voila your Windows will re-launch just like the way it will when you switch on the PC and your hanging problem is fixed.

A significant advantage of these steps is that even if you restart Windows Explorer, applications running on the PC during the restart does not close, and of course, the team does not go through a process of a full reset.
