Tip: The name of dump files would be something like “DumpFile-[numbers].dmp” and “DumpFile-zebrowser-[numbers].dmp”. The [numbers] are replaced with the real numbers.

If deleting dump files doesn’t resolve the problem, you can try deleting the Persistent file. See Method 6.

Deleting the Persistent file in the Genshin Impact directory can increase the load speed of the game (deleting this file won’t delete any data of your game). In some cases, it can resolve the stuck on loading screen problem.

C:\Program Files\Genshin Impact\Genshin impact Game\GenshinImpact_Data

2) Right-click on the Start menu button and select Apps and Features.

3) Scroll down and locate Genshin Impact. Right-click on it and select Uninstall.

If Genshin Impact is not listed, you can uninstall the game by deleting the folder where the game was installed.

4) After the uninstallation process is complete, restart your computer.

5) Install the game again.

Method 8: Delete Genshin Impact registry entries

If none of the above methods works, the last resort you can try is to delete the registry entries of the game.
