You know when you hover over an icon on the taskbar and it sorta stays highlighted even after you move the mouse? That happens to me quite frequently and I figured out that if you restart explorer.exe it fixes that. I went ahead and decided to make a tool that does it for me because I am unbelievably lazy.

Source Code:
Code:
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Globalization;
using System.Linq;
using System.Diagnostics;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace Explorer_Fixer
{
  class Program
  {
  static void Main(string[] args)
  {
  Console.Title = "Explorer Fixer";
  Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.White;
  try
  {
  foreach (Process p in Process.GetProcessesByName("explorer"))
  p.Kill();
  Process.Start("explorer.exe");
  Console.Write("Explorer has been fixed!\n");
  }
  catch (Exception ex)
  {
  Console.Write("Unable to fix Explorer :/\n");
  }
  Console.ReadKey();
  }
  }
}

Enjoy.

If you made it open Chrome after it killed IE, that would of fixed it.

He isn't talking about IE... He is talking about the Windows file explorer.

Funny but this doesn't fix IE. IE has become unfixable.
Just wanna put this out there: Aurora > Chrome

Haha, I must say this is extremely original and simple why did they not add a simple program like this to the windows install anyway.
