    Wordpad, Notepad taking long time to open new document

    Just upgraded from Windows 10 (1511) to the anniversary edition.

    When I try to create a new Wordpad or Notepad document, several minutes pass before the document pops up.

    A pre-existing file pops open upon command as usual.

    Other pgms may be doing the same, but I am not certain; most pop up quickly as they usually do and should.

    Found a USB hardware device which, when unplugged, these symptoms went away.
