Windows 7: Open Word/Excel Files From Desktop

25 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate RC1 Build 7100 x64
Open Word/Excel Files From Desktop

I've noticed an issue where I'll download an attachment (Word or Excel document) and attempt to open from the desktop and there will be a considerable lag (at least 1 minute). However, if I open Word or Excel and then go to File>Open>Desktop File, it'll open immediately. Any other file type on the desktop opens quickly, it just seems to be MS Office files that lag.

I'm using Office 2007 SP2.
