Hello everyone,

If designing and formatting my simple little database isn't time consuming enough, I have spent the past couple of hours trying to figure out this little conundrum:

I have recently started, just within the past few days, having an issue with opening two .accdb files at once from file explorer in Windows 10 without the MS Access program crashing and restarting. These are completely different files with different names (i.e. My_Company_File.accdb and Some_Other_File.accdb).

I can, however, open these two separate .accdb files at once by clicking the MS Access icon and opening the files that I have pinned with no problem.

Why is it that I cant open the files from the folders that I have them stored in directly?

By the way, my machine has been completely updated with no updates pending.

Please somebody help!

Thanks to all that know more than me...

Have you repaired and compacted your databases?

I don't have Win10, but try to open two copies of file explorer and open one .accdb from each one. That might help demonstrate whether the problem is Access or Windows.

Thanks Doc Man,

It was (is) a Windows issue. Ever since the update, I've been exterminating.
