Fix – Windows 10 Freeze Renaming – Saving Files and Folders

microsoft-windows-10-1

If you use lots of shared folders (nas and network in general), windows 10 quick access algorithm could create troubles.

Simply disable it to achieve again maximum response time from your system.

To change how Quick Access works, display the File Explorer ribbon in any folder, navigate to View, and then select Options and then Change folder and search options. The Folder Options window opens.

uncheck “Show frequently use folders in Quick access.”

uncheck “Show recently used folders in Quick access.”

press “Clear”

Problem solved!

Fixed my problem! Win 10 re-syncs the old files that was in your old download and documents folders and your most used folders too. so when you do a fresh install (Like my case) it will still think that the same old files you had are your “Most used” ones and sync them to quick access. Somehow the existens of these non-really-existent folder maps is fucking up the operation of creating a new folder.

Still slow here, used to be instant and now taking around 30 seconds to rename a file and open.
