    File Explorer is very slooooow

    I am running W10 Pro on a new build PC with plenty of resources but still the File Explorer is very slow.

    Ive seen a hundred different opinions/posts about how to speed up File Explorer but I thought I'd ask the experts. Most of the files I deal with are videos. When I have to sort by date/type/size/whatever it takes a half minute or longer to sort the content.

    What do I need to do to speed this up? This is the only laggy part of my machine and it frustrates me so.

    Well, there are alternatives. File Explorer has to go off of the Index, in order to find files. If you are looking for Videos, there are alternatives for managing them.

    What AV are you using? Try temporarily disabling it.
