Hello t1n5l3y, and welcome to Seven Forums.

It may depend on what menu is being expanded. For example, if you have your HDD's set to turn off after X amount of minutes of being idle, then it may take a moment to expand and populate a menu that includes a item from the HDD that is turned off until the HDD spins back up.

You might see if using the tutorial below may be able to help though.

Menu Show Delay Time

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I don't know what happened. I have both folders and shortcuts in the toolbar. If I dragged the folders to the bottom in the order I wanted, it stayed that way. Now every time I reboot or log off, it's folders on top, then shortcuts. Really annoying.

Hey Miles,

That would be the default view for folders over files. Open the folder that the toolbar is for, and see if setting it's folder view how you wanted for this order, then closing the folder may help it to stick in the toolbar.

How the folder displays when I open it in Explorer seems to have no effect. If I sort by modification date, when opened as a toolbar things are sorted by name with folders on top. Pretty weird.

I've always thought that a toolbar from a folder would always show folders over files by default. Has it not always done that other than when you manually move them until a restart?

When I dragged the folders where I wanted for some reason the change survived restarts. I always had the Start folder at the bottom. I guess it was a quirk that it worked. Or as that electronics co. is fond of saying, if it works it's a fluke.
