windows explorer slow to load folder(s)
Posted on 2004-09-17
I remember in Win3.1 and earlier when I clicked on a folder in explorer (or whatever it was called then) it would open up the folder and show the files there in approximately 2 seconds. Now, with faster machines and supposedly a better os it can take up to 30 seconds befoe I can see the files in a folder. What gives? I know explorer can find words within files and other things now but I never use those features. I just want to be able to open a folder and see it's context as fast as I use to be able to.
What can I do? Can I disable some features of explorer so I can see the files faster? any suggestions?
