Windows 10: STORE apps cause keyboard shortcut lag

  1.    01 Oct 2015 #1

    BG processes cause keyboard shortcut lag

    Update, as of 12/5/15

    After considerable experimentation it appears that the lag will occur when a STORE or (system) SETTINGS app (Calculator, for example) or "store" itself is listed in Task Manager background processes. Kill the process, and the lag vanishes. When the app is actually running, it is listed under APPS, not background processes. Then at random times, often after a sleep cycle or at boot, it will spontaneously appear as a background process - Calculator, Store and possibly others.

    Speculated causes of this annoyance are discussed in this article and its embedded links... where "Helen" posted a workaround...

    Disable SUPERFETCH. Click START, type "services", <enter>, double-click on SUPERFETCH. Stop it. Disable it.

    No performance hit has been noted by doing so, and shortcuts launched via keyboard no longer lag. Fingers crossed.
