  1. Slow loading folders


    I started experiencing slow folder loading, up to 10+ seconds, some time ago, perhaps a month or two. Maybe after a windows update. I can't remember for sure, but no system changes were made around that time except for those made by WU.

    A good example where there is no good reason for this to be happening is my Start menu directory, which contains nothing but shortcuts

    I tried the conventional approach for most folders, changing the customize tab to "General Items", including sub folders, but It doesn't help. Also, choosing the "subfolders" options does not carry over to the "customize" options for those subfolders, which I guess at this point doesn't matter because the "general Items" tweak is not effective, but I thought I"d mention it.

    Not to mention the fact that the C:\ drive does not even have a "customize" tab in properties.

    I just did a fresh install, and it's still a problem, with virtually nothing added to the added to the system.

    Constant script errors and slow loading pages in 10 internet explorer 11

    I have done the steps listed above. They have not helped and I am still getting constant script errors, along with slow loading pages. Are there any other suggestions?

  3. Very slow to load Downloads folder in Windows 10

    The steps outlined at How to Fix a Slow-Opening Windows Downloads Folder helped me.

    1. Open File Explorer. You can get there by hitting Windows Key + E or clicking on the explorer icon in your taskbar.

    2. Right click on the Downloads shortcut in the
    window pane and select Properties.

    3. Navigate to the Customize tab.

    4. Select "General items" from the "Optimize this folder for:" list.

    5. Click Ok.​

  4. Slow loading folders

    Windows 10 Painfully load folders contents really slow regardless if is a folder created by me or a windows folder

    Every single folder regardless if is a folder created by me or a windows folder or even any folder in any of my other 3 hard drive it will load the content inside this folder Pics video whatever that is inside the folder loads painfully slow. I even
    did a fresh install of windows 10 with a clean brand new SSD HDD, Motherboard, CPU and still the problem persist.

    I have a very powerful machine with SSD, 4.6 Intel 6 core processor and a Geforce GTX 1080 and this thing load the contents inside any folder really slow. Never had this happen to me before it just mysteriously started happening, this is definitely a windows
    problem not a components problem.

    I have been suggested to do a few things trying to fix the problem like changing the folder to (General) but every folder is already set to general

    I have been suggested to go to system configuration and uncheck (Windows search) and save and restart

    none of this method did nothing to solve the problem.
