Whenever I open up file explorer on my pc (Win 10), or even press the windows key, my internet cuts out for about 15 seconds or until I close the file explorer.

This recently started about 2 weeks ago, and I have never had this issue in the 5 years of owning my PC.

How can I fix this?

that is strange

Try a clean boot and see if it changes anything - make sure to read instructions and make sure NOT to disable any microsoft services or windows won't load right - https://support.microsoft.com/en-au/help/929135/how-to-perform-a-clean-boot-in-windows

if clean boot fixes it, it shows its likely a startup program. You should, over a number of startups. restart the programs you stopped to isolate the one that is to blame.

are you using a WIFI adapter? link
