Windows 7: How To Speed Up Slow Thumbnail Loading

How To Speed Up Slow Thumbnail Loading

I notice when I open a folder with a lot of images the thumbnails take a very long time to load (medium or large thumbnails). Sometimes even icons are slow loading.

Is this a processor problem, a ram problem or a graphics card issue.

Are there any tweaks I can do to speed up the loading of thumbnails?

Kind Regards
Chris

PS. The thumbnail cache is presently set to not configured/NO in the local group policy editor which means the thumbnail cache is working.

An easy trick to speed up a picture folder is to change how it's optimized, selecting General Items instead of the default Images:

Kari, thank you for this suggestion. I tried it and they do load faster. The problem is though that with this setting the thumbnail view is very fuzzy with large icons.

Kind Regards

Are you running a system cleaner (like CCleaner)?

If so, check the settings to make sure it isn't cleaning your "Thumbnail Cache".

Thanks for this suggestion. I will disable thumbnail catch cleaning in ccleaner and see how I get on.

Kind Regards
