  1. Settings menu slow to load


    I just got a new i7 Surface Laptop and imaged it with MDT at work using our Enterprise version of the Anniversary Update. The first thing I did was to run all the updates which upgraded me to the Creators update. I now notice, not sure when it started, that the Settings app takes an unusual amount of time to load up. It sits at the blue screen with the gear on it for a solid 25 seconds. I mainly notice it when I goto Personalize (right-click the desktop and choose Personalize). When it opens if I close it and try to open it again it opens up fine. If I wait a bit it delays again. I have noticed some of the other "Settings" pages doing the same thing. Other than that, everything seems to run fine. I have already re-imaged it again trying to find out when it started. I already had the Creators update on it at work and tested the problem and the page loaded right up. I brought it home tonight and started downloading my OneDrive files and checking for more update and just noticed it doing it again. At this moment I do have an update that is stuck at 2% downloading and has been that way for a while. Could that cause the Settings to run slow, everything else seems fine.

    Curious if anyone else had this issue. Googling didn't seem to give me this exact problem.

    Thanks for any help you may be able to give,
    Scott

  2. E51 slow menu load

    Ok, so the problem looks like this:

    After i press the Menu button (classic one or the shortcut key), i have to wait 1-3 seconds before it appears and another 2-4 seconds before i can click on an item (Messaging/Logs/etc). Even after i receive a text message (sms), it takes 2-3 seconds before
    it will be displayed. Why this ? Had plenty of non-symbian phones and all behaved outstanding regarding phone-key-reaction (didnt had to wait this much). It`s a pain in the bottom if you want to add/edit things quickly (alarms, new contacts/sms/etc). I have
    to keep what i need running in Task Manager so i can access them faster. And this drains the battery life.

    So... why this slow menu load ?

    E51 slow menu load

    I had this problem - it reached the point where it took 8 seconds to open up messaging.

    I worked out that if I have more than 400 sms (text messages) in inbox then the whole phone slows.

    I erased the inbox and it is flying!
