    File explorer slow with loading thumnails and files


    Step by step guide:
    1. Hold Win+r to open run
    2. Type msconfig and hit ok or enter
    3. Click Services
    4. Navigate to Windows search (you can sort the list in descending alphabetical order)
    5. Uncheck tickbox
    6. Click apply then ok
    7. Select to restart now

    Hope this works for you.

  3. File Explorer Green Ribbon of Death


    When I first upgraded to W10, File Explorer worked as it did in W7. Now when I open it I see a blank preview section and the forever expanding green ribbon in the ribbon bar. I tried checking Always show Icons, never thumbnails and the green ribbon finally finishes. But not being able to see picture thumbnails is a pain. I turned thumbnails on for the Pictures folder only and the never ending green ribbon is back. Possibly a related problem: with thumbnails off (or on) if I left click on a video file in the Videos volder, file explorer hangs and I have to end it with Task Manager.

    I have heard that by ending the dllhost.exe process/service, the green ribbon goes away, but so does W10 security and stability.

    Suggestions on how to fix are appreciated.

    Without a properworking File Explorer, W10 is not really a suitable OS.

    File Explorer Not Functioning - Green Loading Forever

    You mention Windows search too: consider this case which the poster solved:
    https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/...7-c2177a276885

    Another possible idea:
    Fix Windows folder unresponsive/slow behavior, green loading bar

    If you want to see what's actually happening as that progress bar progresses, you can capture ALL activity (from registry access upwards) using Procmon (Process Monitor) free from MS, but I'd guess it's more likely to be a peculiarity of explorer vs configuration.

    You get a long text list of activity; lots of very technical filters to focus on particular aspects.
