Using task manager in windows to spawn new shell

It is common in Windows that while working we suddenly find ourselves unable to click or do much because of “hangs” in the system.
There can be many many reasons for this to happen,event viewer can help to see that.Most of the times,we restart Windows to make the frozen screen go away,however there is one more method which can be tried before actually restarting the system.

How :
1.Begin by giving the three finger salute (Ctrl-Alt-Del),and select task manager.
2.Click File>New Task.
3.In the popup window,type : explorer.exe and hit enter.
4.This will basically spawn the new system shell over the old one effectively terminating all the applications and files from the older one.
