    Removing KODI did not help in my case. I think I had downloaded KODI and have not installed it thru the Microsoft Store though.
    Have you tried checking what UWP apps you have installed? If you go to the Microsoft Store and click the three dots on the right and choose "My Library"->"Installed" or "All owned". A lot of them come with Windows 10 but it is possible that an installed one is causing the issue. To uninstall search for the app name in the start menu and right click on it. If it isn't one of the built-in UWP apps like Xbox it should have the uninstall option available.

    Hello r1ch4rdNZ, thanks a ton. This really helped. I removed about half of the installed apps most of which I didnt even know I had. Then restarted the machine and "NEW" in the context menu comes up quite fast again.
    Thanks again. Cheers.

    I recently had this start happening on 1809 and traced it back to the UWP (Microsoft Store) version of Kodi. Uninstalling it and using the native windows version fixed the issue for me. If you aren't using Kodi then perhaps it is worth uninstalling all UWP apps in case one of them is responsible.

    Me too! 'Right Click' > 'New' takes ages to open. I thought some app had corrupted the registry, now I know what it is. I'm not alone. Some day Microsoft will fix this, hopefully

    Interestingly this affects some people, not others. I have no discernible delay on this Lenovo laptop with few added context menu entries compared to my other.

    I have the same problem, right clicking on the desktop is fast but "New" context menu is very slow. Everything else such as "View", and "Sort by" is fine.

    Hey there, I stumbled upon this problem and read through every single post here. Fortunately some of you mentioned that uninstalling Universial Apps (like Kodi) helped, so it gave me a helpful hint to find a solution - or rather workaround. Since this problem occurs even on fresh installs from what I have seen, basically every user with Windows 10 1809 must be affected by this.
    Well, long story short, here is a way to dramatically reduce the "new" context menu entry delay. What you need to do is to (be willing to) uninstall a few apps that Windows comes with. Here are the PowerShell commands:
    Code:
    Get-AppxPackage *zune* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *sketch* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *photos* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *wallet* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *solitai* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *bing* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *help* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *3d* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *reality* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Get-AppxPackage *office* | Remove-AppxPackage
    Once these apps are removed, wait a few seconds until you can see that the Windows taskbar flickers for a tiny moment. That is the sign that Windows's Explorer acknowledged these changes. Now you can try rightclicking and select "New". Depending on the PC's processor speed, the delay is now either non-existent or at least greatly reduced. Side note: The first three apps in the lines above cause the longest delays.
    Hopefully this helps someone out!

    To all the people still having this problem, also:

    Get this portable app that shows all the items in your Context Menu > New. There may be one item that's causing the lag. Post a screenshot of what you have, then I can try helping tell you which ones to disable:

    I just registered here to say thank you. You've solved my problem, which I'm already desperate about.
    Uninstalling KODI solved the problem!
    THANK YOU!

    Ignore my question below, I don't even have KODI installed, so clearly that's not the problem.
    This "new folder" delay issue is really annoying.

    Any other suggestions?


    Hi there,

    Could you please direct me on how to go about uninstalling KODI?

    Cheers
