    Files very often load only very slowly


    The CPU of my PC is an i7-6700 with 16 GB RAM running Windows 10 Pro 1809 Build 17763.379. I have my data on several internal SSDs and several NAS with Gigabit Ethernet connections. My antivirus software is the built in Defender from MS.
    My Windows 10 File Explorer is getting slower and slower (not for copy purposes but with file openings). At first I thought this is because I have a slows NAS. I updated to a new NAS, it still is the same. Now I made a test with differrent file types TXT, RFT and DOC, all very small files. I even changed the associated programms to Wordpad for txt and rtf and Textmaker for doc. I copied the folder with these files to an SSD in my PC, even to the boot partition. But is is always the same: Some files open instantly, some take some 20 seconds. Not always the same files but mostly with RTFs and Wordpad. Sometimes even the opening of the folder takes this 20 seconds

    What can be the reason for this strange behavior and what can I do to speed up things again?

    :)

    Thumbnails load slowly in Explorer


    Hi, have you done any research on this? A general search for
    thumbnails load slowly
    suggests e.g.
    How to Speed Up a Windows Folder that Loads Very Slowly

    But there are so many factors: how large a file is each image: where are the files located: what is the speed of access to that location: what else is the PC doing at the same time..... (check your task manager).

    Another angle:
    When Windows 10 thumbnails seem to be missing or slow to load, try this | PCWorld

    Please also feel free to search the forum.

    Note: forum rules prohibit thread bumping... thanks.

    Wordpad loads files slowly

    Hi,

    My Wordpad suddenly loads files slowly after I upgraded windows. With a 1M text file, it takes around 5s to load in win 8.1 while the loading time in win 10 is about 1min or more.

    Does anyone know what is the problem and how to solve it?

    Thank you.
