File explorer slow / Never loading solution

2016-10-31 · Posted in Windows – 10

Ok so since upgrading from 7 to 10 file explorer has been a absolute nightmare! Everything was either incredibly slow, didn’t happen or only partially load. After enduring this to this day I have decided enough is enough and started diagnosing by limiting the startup services using MSconfig.

After going through enabling startup services groups at the time and restarting the computer everytime! Eventually I found the service that was causing the problems with file explorer. The service is called Windows search and once disabled it restored functionality to file explorer. The search function in file explorer works but the search in the taskbar doesn’t.

Step by step guide:

  1. Hold Win+r to open run
  2. Type msconfig and hit ok or enter
  3. Click Services
  4. Navigate to Windows search (you can sort the list in descending alphabetical order)
  5. Uncheck tickbox
  6. Click apply then ok
  7. Select to restart now

Hope this works for you.
