Crashes on external monitor

Recommended Posts

I'm using a laptop with 4K screen. I have two external monitors attached.

When I click the start button on my built-in 4K screen, the start menu opens just fine. When I click the start button on one of my external monitors, explorer.exe oftenly crashes. This is not 100% reproducible, and doesn't seem to only happen when clicking the start button. It may also happen when hitting the start button on my keyboard with an active window on the external monitors (causing the start menu to display there).

As for settings: I have a start button on each monitor, taskbar is locked, not auto hidden, small buttons enabled, peek disabled, buttons never combined, window buttons only appear on the monitor they're on. I'm on virtual desktop 1 (of 2 total).

The start button then looks to be unresponsive for a few seconds, so I guess it freezes, and afterwards explorer.exe crashes and respawns itself. Very annoying when trying to get some work done, if I'm totally honest.

I'm on Windows 10 x64 (10.0.17134.407) with StartIsBack++ 2.7.2.
