Windows 10 Issue : explorer is very slow

Post by fatherviper » Fri Oct 21, 2016 12:53 am

Recently I had a win 10 clean installation on my PC. Now I need to wait for at least 5 seconds before showing any folders in local drives. While opening any folder I can see a message 'working on it'

This Pc is having a 4GB ram and clocked at 2.5 GHZ AMD A series CPU. It has no problem with the previous version of windows and worked fair on windows 8.1.
I had done defragmentation and disk checkup and found no issues associated with the disk.
please help me?

Hi, first you really should have more memory. Windows is a total memory hog and this could be part of your problem.

Try to optimize the folders for GENERAL ITEMS - properties --> customize --> select general items and tick the box below for subfolders.

That above will take away the settings windows uses for music/pictures/etc so everything should display as a file name rather than trying to create or load special thumbnails.

if you are using a direct upgrade system from older versions of winows , Try to perform a clean installation. I recovered from this issue by doing this. I was facing a circling icon when opening my drives. I performed some optimization but never got any results :toimonster:
