I am using SAS 9.4 and have been for years. Recently when I double click a sas table in the explorer it opens a new Viewtable tab but there is no window with it. It is as if the table is unable to load. Once this happens SAS will not close properly.
I have tried resetting and powering down everything several times. The problem never goes away. Any thoughts?

Make SAS Explorer the active window, click on Tools>Options>Explorer. Go the Members tab. Click on the Table Icon to select and then the Edit button.
What does the option next to &Open look like? Highlight &Open and then click edit and you will be able to copy and paste the result here.
For my install I have this:
VIEWTABLE %8b."%s".DATA openmode=edit
which says to open using Viewtable, set the mode so that I can edit (mostly sort) the table
