Sometimes the Explorer suddenly disappears and we have to restart pc to bring it again .So in order to bring the task manager back again we have a hidden system and you can do that by the following the below process:

At first you have to go to start menu and then click on Turn off computer and when the dialog box for turning off computer appears ,you have to press Ctrl+Alt+Shift key and then press Cancel buttons.When you press cancel button the explorer will be closed and now press Ctrl+Shift+Esc key to bring the explorer back again which will bring the task manager on the screen.In the task manager click on new task and type explorer.exe in the text box and press ok .Now,you will be getting the windows explorer back again.

Sometimes Explorer gets infected with viruses and it closes, so we will need to restart the computer to go back. Just simply press  Ctrl+Alt+Del to launch the Task Manager. Click the New Task button and then type Explorer in the search box. This will launch Explorer on your computer with all the icons on your PC.

I think what you are asking is similar to the mandatory system restart of the computer after installing software but without physically restarting the system. It’s like restarting Windows but without rebooting the system or the computer. It’s just like refreshing the system without having to reboot Windows. Mandatory system restart is required if some changes have been made in the system, for example after installing an application. This is necessary for the changes in the system to take effect. But if you have some very critical tasks that are currently loaded and you can’t have your system be restarted, there is an easy way to avoid the mandatory rebooting of the computer.

Here is how it is done in Windows XP. If you have other versions of Windows or you are using a different operating system, just try adapting the procedure.

  • Launch Windows Task Manager by pressing CTRL + SHIFT + ESC. The other way of opening the Task Manager is by pressing CTRL + ALT + DEL.
  • Click Processes tab.
  • Select “explorer.exe” from the list then hit End Process.
  • Click Yes to confirm the task.
  • Still in the Windows Task Manager window, click File then select New Task (Run).
  • Type “explorer” or “explorer.exe” then press Enter or click OK.

That’s it. You’ve already restarted Windows Explorer. It’s as if you’ve already rebooted the computer.
