    Windows slow - general


    Hi

    I'm experiencing some weird issues recently and I think it may be because I have deferred and delayed the feature update from 'restarting' to update from 1709 to 1803.

    General use is not as snappy as it once was. Using Home version with SSD.

    If I double click This PC, it can take 2 - 3 seconds to fully show drives and folders.

    Opening a text file can also result in the same 2 - 3 second delay.

    Same applies to opening Firefox, which as been updated.

    I caved in and let Windows update to 1803, but not much has changed.

    Windows antivirus and Malwarebytes hasn't found anything.

    What could be the issue?

    :)

    DTS supported natively by Windows 8/8.1 and it should work on windows 10 too just DDL require to unlock your driver .

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    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
