How to speed up the Folder Loading time in Windows 7

By dwarkarao
Let me ask you this question how many of you have faced this problem when ever you open any folder it takes a long time to load all the contents?

If you are facing this problem then we have the solution for this. But before knowing the solution then I would have to tell you the reason also due to which it happens so.

Every time we open any folder Windows 7 starts caching all the thumbnails and if the contents of the folder are large in number then it take a bit more time to complete the process. Now the question may arise why it take so much time as it might have cached the last time even? The answer to this is Windows 7 will delete the cache and rebuild it from the scratch every time that’s is the reason due to which it takes so much of time.

Below are the steps to be followed to speed up the loading time of the folders in Windows 7:

Step 1: Right click on the folder and select “Properties”
Step 2: Click on the customize tab.
Step 3: Select the appropriate option from the drop down box where it says “Optimize this folder for”
Step 4: Click on OK.

The option in the step 3 has to be selected based on the folder contents that you have. If all the contents are videos, music or pictures then you can select the respective option but if you have all the documents mixed up in your folder then you can select Documents option.

Try this and speed up your folder loading fast.

speed up, windows 7
