TC hangs on opening "open" dialog every time after saving an STL file once

Launch TC
Draw 3D object and save it in STL format
Close file and go to File > Open
TC hangs when trying to select file.

Close TC and restart it
TC hangs every time on trying opening the Open dialog.


It is Windows 8 & 10 issue.
The workaround to avoid issue on the computer (do it once):
Open any STL file by program that is specified by default for the STL extension once (mouse double click on file).

Thank you Ehtisham.
I tried this, and, after a fashion, what you describe happens.   :(
At least the solution works, which beats having to remove TC and reinstall.   :)
Will this be fixed, any time soon?
