    Also if possible , could you post your issue in a form of step by step reproduce and provide some screenshot and also post some specification of your system.

  • Have you activated the option to start a new process for file manager or not? If not the shell/desktop and the Explorer as file manager are hosted by 1 Explorer.ede and so the 200MB might be normal.
