    Windows Explorer Taking a Long Time to Function?


    Hello all, I try to right-click on files whilst exploring files in Windows Explorer. As of late, it's taken a while for the contextual window to appear. Does anyone know why this may be?

    Try a Clean Boot. If this works, You can leave it this way, or you can add one Startup Item or Service till right click menu problem happens again, then you will know the troublesome program.

    Hello Wombo,

    The tutorial below may be able to help fix your slow context menu issue that's most likely caused by a shell extension from a 3rd party app.
