it started occuring this week.

Then you’re just lucky enough because I’ve been facing this issue since 2022.

In that case, I shall describe a workaround for the ongoing Windows session. The error may reappear once you restart your computer.

  1. Open Task Manager.

  2. Conduct a search for “Windows Explorer.”

  3. Select Windows Explorer and click on the restart button in the upper-right corner.

This will temporarily rectify the issue.
