    Desktop drag lag


    Whenever I drag an icon/shortcut on my pc it take a second to move it and is laggy. It’s also pretty laggy when I drag the blue box thingy to select multiple icons. Even just hovering the mouse over icons it takes awhile to register. And this is on a decent gaming pc and my old laptop doesn’t even lag on desktop. I’m on Windows 10. One thing that I found out is that if I sign out of my account and back in , few a few seconds it had zero lag on the desktop but after a couple seconds it is laggy again. Also when I sign into a different user there is no lag. What could be causing this ?

    Dragging apps to desktop for shortcuys

    Hi Lance,

    It's possible that some settings are preventing you from adding shortcuts to the desktop. We'd like to learn more about your concern so that we could provide the proper resolution. We just have a few questions for you:

    • Which build version of Windows 10 is on your computer? To check, click
      Start
      , type winver, and press Enter. For example, 14393.1066.
    • Does this happen when you try dragging all apps to the desktop, or just a specific app?
    • Are you using an administrator account?
    • Is your computer connected to a private domain?
    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?

    As an initial recommendation, we suggest following these steps as a workaround:

    • Right-click on any empty part of the desktop.
    • Click New > Shortcut.
    • Navigate to the folder location of the app you want and select it.
    • Click OK.

    We look forward to your response and the result of the initial troubleshooting.

  3. Window lags when dragging it up.

    Window lags when dragging it up. Whenever I move it up, it becomes jittery. That's all I can explain.
