Question Windows cannot find (video file), please make sure you typed it correctly and try again


Mar 10, 2019
I've been recording some gameplay to review in order to improve, but it seems as if Windows doesn't want to let me view it. Some files are .mkv (old SLOBS recordings) and the latest ones are .mp4, which I thought might solve my issue. In both cases, when double clicking the video or trying to access it through anything other than Windows Media Player, it gives the error "Windows cannot find (file path), please make sure you typed the name correctly, then try again". I looked up solutions, but it looks like all of them are for a different issue that occurs when starting File Explorer, not the one I'm having. I'm running a Ryzen 5 2600, an RTX 3060Ti FE, 32 gigs of Vengeance LPX at 3kmhz, a 500gig SSD and a 1tb HDD (videos are on the hard drive), on an MSI B450-A PRO.
