windows 7 file preview

at one of the branches at my company the network is SLOW!!  I noticed in explorer that even to create a desktop shortcut from a network share it is unbelievably slow.
So I was wondering, if I go to folder options and uncheck some of the advanced settings in the View tab, would that help? Because isn't there some settings that get information about the size of the folder, or maybe the contents. Or would there be somewhere else in windows 7 where i could mess with settings so when you click on something it doesn't bother finding folder size information and just opens the folder?

Explorer is going to browse.

If you know the file, you could try opening it with the correct path in Word, Excel or whatever (but do not browse as that is just Explorer). That avoids browsing and may be a bit faster.
