    File Explorer - Folder w/1,300+ files takes >2 minutes to sort by date


    When I open file explorer and select certain folders, it opens in the alpha sort. When I go to sort on dates, it takes forever in Windows 10, and has pretty much since launch. Don't remember this on Win7. Are there any switches I could throw, or other config changes I can make to address this?

    I originally misread the thread, after rereading it, decided to remove my original post; I'll be listening in and learning!

    There might not be any problem with the OS. Instead, there could be files with extra long names.
