    File Explorer Will Not Load / Extremely Slow


    I've been having this problem recently, I honestly dont know what it is. My computer runs smoothly, up until I open up file explorer and it basically doesn't load. It's been sitting there for at least 40 minutes. If anyone can shed some light, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

    It depends on how many files that you have in a particular directory. Windows has to reload the cache every time you open up Explorer.

    This worked for me-
    Open File Explorer
    Click View
    Click Options on the right side
    Under Privacy, Click Clear, which clears the File Explorer History
    After I did this File Explorer loaded and has been running fast so far.
