    Desktop folder slow "Working on it" when I save a file


    Hello,


    I am trying to fix a problem that two users are experiencing. They are using different browsers and programs when they are trying to save/upload a document to/from the desktop folder and it takes quite a while to load what is in the folder and says "Working on it..". I have tried a couple of solutions, but none of them have worked and they are still having the problem.


    I have tried:

    • Restarting the computer
    • Rebuilding the search index
    • sfc /scannow
    • chkdsk/r and restarted


    I would set the file to optimize folders to "General", but you can't do that to the desktop folder. Most of the articles that give the solution to this problem is for regular folders like Documents, but my issue is the Desktop folder.


    Thanks

    :)
