    Program launch lag (FYI)

    There is a lag of approximately three seconds when launching programs via Windows 10 shortcut keys. This is a longstanding, oft-reported issue that is alleged by some forum participants to predate Windows 10. There is no lag if programs are launched via a mouse.

    The fault may also prevent some macros from completing, a serious detriment.

    It is not caused by viruses, malware or missing system files (SFC). Resetting Windows, increasing virtual memory or a clean boot are not relevant.

    The lag is related to suspended background processes - such as calculator - which are repeatedly initiated by the Superfetch service. Disabling it solves the problem in most cases, but that shouldn't be required.
