I have a rather odd problem. Occasionally, but consistently, I will have a file explorer window open by itself. I might be working away browsing or doing emails or whatever, then all of a sudden the file explorer/folder window has opened by itself for no reason. Related to this, sometimes if I already have a folder window open in the background, it will suddenly bring itself to the foreground for no reason either.
When the new window opens by itself, it seems to always be the same folder - my E drive. When an existing folder comes to the foreground, this can be whatever folder I already have open in the background.
When the E drive folder opens, it opens at the lowest level and shows me the three folders at first level, which are: Games, Program Files, and Program Files (x86).
I am running Windows 10, latest updates installed. My setup is C drive is a SSD with OS and my most common apps, (D drive DVD), E drive is what I have called 'Data (Programs and Games) - it's a seperate physical HD where I install other less commonly used programs and games to, to save space on my SSD. And I also have a F drive which is just for data.
The only thing I can assume is maybe there is some conflict between the Program Files folders in my E drive and my C drive that somehow causes this folder to open at random times. But as far as I know I should be able to install programs to non-C drive locations.
I have run antivirus checks, and malware bytes scan, and nothing unusual was picked up. I have all the latest Windows updates installed. I have checked startup tasks and there is nothing in there that should cause the folder to open (and it's not happening during start up anyway). I've run all the Windows troubleshooters as suggested on some webpages. No luck so far.
I should also mention, this is a new PC, I've had it for a month. It was physically built for me but I installed the OS and everything else on it, and this problem has happened from Day One.
