    Windows 10

    Volume control slow to respond including other task bar icons

    I am not sure if this is a real issue that i'm having but i haven't had this problem before in the past when i was running windows 8.1.

    It seems now my laptop which has been recently upgraded to Windows 10 is now slowing down and accessing any toolbar is becoming very slow to respond when selecting an icon.

    Although i dont have this issue compared to my desktop pc running the same operating system, this now is starting to become very concerning.

    I was just wondering unless there are other startup programs in the background that i am not aware of, that is slowing things down the system which is understandable but i would think this now take me several minutes even up to about 10 minutes at a time before i access the volume control or for that matter any other toolbars on the task bar.

    The strange thing here is that i can open up Google Chrome or Windows Edge or for that matter any other program i wish without having to wait. But why is it, this is only happening with the icon on the task bar.

    Just wondering what should i do to allow this to say speed things up for me. Has anyone else had this similar issue.

    Oh by the way i hardly have any programs installed on my laptop and this is still a fairly new pc as it is a Acer i5 processor so i would think it should be able to handle this startup issue without me having to wait such a long time.

    Any ideas to get this moving more quickly.
