    Folder keeps getting rescanned?

    I have a folder full of .exe's and everytime I open it up I have to wait a couple of seconds to navigate within it as Windows 10 scans the folder so that the icons for each executable gets displayed therefore consuming 100% disk activity. Why does Windows 10 do this? Windows 7 never did this, ever since I upgraded it keeps doing it.

    Hi, I've not heard of this- but someone may have. Presumably your experience has been with older builds of Win 10, not just the newest Creator's Build, so it's not build specific.

    I have a folder with 1000 exe's and zip files, and only notice a slight delay whilst the icons are displayed as I scroll down the folder, but that doesn't have a significant impact in practice.

    Does the same happen in Safe Mode?
