  1. windows 10 Explorer is impossibly slow


    Windows Explorer has become impossibly slow. I don't mean it takes a long time. I mean it NEVER reaches the end of the green bar. It seems like windows are just not indexing my folders anymore. Now, I must admit that I am a photographer and I have hundreds of thousands of photos. I know that folders with a large number of files will be slower. I know this. But they should only be slower, if I am viewing those folders in thumbnail view for the first time. Once windows has created an index of the thumbnails of that folder, subsequent visits should be much faster. But I am not just having this problem when viewing in thumbnail mode. This is occurring when I am viewing in DETAIL mode.


    This is the problem. It does not matter what mode I view a folder with a large number of files, Explorer can NEVER fully index them, even in DETAIL view mode. I have been using Windows since version 95. I have never had this kind of problem. I have the useless Troubleshooter and found no problems with Search and Indexing not that it has EVER fixed a single problem. I do not know why the troubleshooter even exists. It never fixes ANYTHING! Not once in since its invention has it ever helped me.


    I like Windows 10, but Explorer has been a pain since I upgraded to 10. I thought with time Microsoft would improve it, but it has just gotten worse and worse. Now it does not work at all. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

    :)

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Microsoft Internet Explorer renamed to Windows Internet Explorer ?

    windows 10 Explorer is impossibly slow wie1.png


    Since version 7 of the world`s most popular web browser - Microsoft Internet Explorer was silently renamed to Windows Internet Explorer.Such a step from Microsoft is not a surprise since Internet Explorer is part of the Windows operation system for a long time.Obviously Microsoft corp. wants to state that Internet Explorer is already considered as a part of Windows and not as an external browser (remember the IE and WMP law issues last year!?).
