    Is anyone else's taskbar item menu slow?


    I'm not sure of the name of this, but when you right click on a program's 'listing' in the taskbar ('Chrome', or a 'This PC' of Explorer) you get a menu (Close window, pin to tastbar etc) - on W7 this was near instant. On W10 on the same machine it takes maybe a second to appear. IS this just me?

    It can take a bit for 10 to do its thing. It is a lot more resource hungry than 8 was, because of how many background processes run.

    My "right click taskbar program context menus" (I think that may be the correct term) popup in an instant. In fact, I have not observed any noticeable slowdown on any of the devices I have upgraded.

    Maybe you have something hogging resources?

    Nothing hogging resources, clean install with nothing running in background besides Explorer. Maybe it's more like 1/3 a second, it's not bad just not instant like on W7. I don't have an ssd but this shouldn't be an issue. I thought it could be a graphics driver issue but Windows says I'm using the latest one (2013 ATI HD4200 driver)

    I'm having the same problem, although only on my secondary screen. There it takes nearly a second to open, while on my primary screen its more like 0.2s.
