Windows 10: Lagging Taskbar, Windows Explorer, and Tool Tips (version 1607)
Lagging Taskbar, Windows Explorer, and Tool Tips (version 1607)
Occasionally I find that Windows 10 becomes unusually laggy and unresponsive. In particular, I find that when I hover my mouse over the icons in the Taskbar, the icons are not highlighted quickly or at all. In Windows Explorer, a similar thing happens when I hover the mouse over files. Tool-tips are very slow to pop up, and when they do they tend to appear incomplete. Mouse clicks are not received immediately, and everything is just slow to respond.
I find that can avoid the problem by restarting. The problem appears in about 1 in 4 or 5 work sessions. It's not hugely annoying but it concerns me.
My current version of Windows 10 is version 1607 (KB3194496). I don't have a previous version or update that I can roll back to. Any help with this problem would be most appreciated.
How to deal with lag? Reinstall windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Hi, hard to know what to suggest. I'm replying 'cos no-one has so far.
You can try elimination
- safe mode
- clean boot
- disable shell extensions (e.g. using shellmenuview)
You can try an in-place upgrade repair install
You could try technical analysis trying to see what processes are doing when the system is misbehaving
(Procmon, Latency Mon e.g. - even the task manager).
And naturally try searching the forum for reports of lag and slow response (there are plenty)

After this update I have a Windows-Old folder, 17.6 gig. Can this folder be deleted? Happy with update and will not go back to 1511.
I would Like to know the Difference between the 2
and is the 1607 mandatory ? If not this means that 1511 version 10586.545 is correct and up to date ? is this correct ??
DaVinci Resolve is a video editing program by BlackMagic Design and is as near to professional as a free program can get; of course, this is my opinion. Thanks to Kari for discovering this one.
