Windows 10: Right Click on Desktop take long time to show up
If you still have the NDIVIA control panel in the context menu. Open it and click on Desktop and uncheck 2 items from there. You don't need it in Context Menu. You can also access it from Control Panel->NVDIA Control Panel.
In Addition, run chkdsk on the external HD to make sure it is not corrupted. Use: Chkdsk /r option.
I actually delete the Nvidia Control Panel in the Contextual Menu using the RegEdit. Then also try that ShexView program and Disabled all the Contextual Menu. Chkdsk /r option Return nothing wrong with the Hard Drive itself.
Guess I have to keep using the NoSleepHD in the meantime.
I'm not sure about the all-in-one drives like WD My Cloud, but my NAS setup is a box that I supplied the drives for. In my case, WD Red NAS drives. I have five different drives mapped to the NAS, and the right-click context menu pops up quickly.
I just ran a quick test using a Toshiba USB3 HDD, and I noticed no slow down in the context menu. I think the problem may lie somewhere other than the USB drive. Real frustrating, though, since your system is pretty clean. I'll keep digging and let you know if I find anything.
I don't know why it doesn't do it on your PC, but did a quick Google on this Drive and it show that there a built-in Firmware that put it to sleep when idles caused it from overheating.
But using the NoSleepHD indeed solved the problem, but I'm a bit worried the long term effect of it to caused it to overheat and making it spin 24/7 will shorten the life on the Drive.
Thanks anyway for the solution. I may just use the NoSleepHD for awhile or just have to live with the slow ness of opening Contextual Menu and Recycle Bin.
Bloody hell, this actually works, even without restart.

I know I'm bumping an old thread, I just wanted to confirm this worked for my Win 10 SL x64. I deleted 3 keys, 1 for NVIDIA, 2 for INTEL HD (as I'm using Dual GPU laptop).
Deleting NVIDIA's alone didn't work, so I went ahead and nuked the other two keys (Intel). It works....
Glad it worked for you too! Thanks for posting.
Hi everyone, I have tried playing with Shellexview, in order to fix a similar problem. It didn't work! But my problem is that I can not re-enable the disabled Shell Extensions. I have restarted the laptop, no change. For example, I disabled the WinRAR extensions and now I can not re-enable them. I tried reinstalling the software, it didn't work as well. If anyone has any ideas, I would be really grateful.
Hey Tey tey,

Thank you guys so much ! I was almost about to reinstall my Windows
OK, I've done the settings for the time & date. However, no matter how wide I make the Taskbar, the short form continues to be shown. In Windows 7, when the Taskbar was widened, the long form would be shown. Is there something I need to do here? ...
I'm having this issue since I upgraded to Win 10: when I click restart, my laptop becomes stuck on the restart screen for ages, even the hard drive doesn't show any signs of activity. Its only after like 15 mins or so the hard drive comes...

I can't quite get a handle on this issue.
Why would having USB drives attached to system increase boot time from 8 seconds to 110 seconds? Never happened on old 560 box, but does on new 3847. Dell says, "That's the way it is". Sounds odd....
I chose to try the upgrade exe file to install Windows 10 update to Windows 8.1. I started at 5PM. It is now 1015 PM and it's at 25%. I don't dare stop it, but have others experienced this?
I forgot to mention that the upgrade is going on to 5 year...
