    Folder keeps getting rescanned?


    I have a folder full of .exe's and everytime I open it up I have to wait a couple of seconds to navigate within it as Windows 10 scans the folder so that the icons for each executable gets displayed therefore consuming 100% disk activity. Why does Windows 10 do this? Windows 7 never did this, ever since I upgraded it keeps doing it.

    :)

    Hi Eugene,

    The possible reasons why you're having this concern can be caused by a software conflict or corrupted system files after the update process. You may use the following methods to resolve your concern:

    Method 1: Start your PC in safe mode. This will help detect if there are any third-party
    applications that may cause the issue.

    Method 2: Run the System File Checker tool. This
    tool will allow you to scan for any corruptions in Windows system files and restore it at the same time.

    Let us know if the provided methods work for you.

    Folder keeps getting rescanned?

    Hi, I've not heard of this- but someone may have. Presumably your experience has been with older builds of Win 10, not just the newest Creator's Build, so it's not build specific.

    I have a folder with 1000 exe's and zip files, and only notice a slight delay whilst the icons are displayed as I scroll down the folder, but that doesn't have a significant impact in practice.

    Does the same happen in Safe Mode?
