Windows 7: Slow changing between folders

29 Jun 2011   #1

Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Slow changing between folders

This morning I noticed in WLM 2011 that it takes 5-6 seconds to shift between folders in my email accounts. That's very slow considering before today, clicking on another folder brought up that folder immediately. Anyone else having this problem? I can't imagine what happened. I tried a repair, but the problem persists. Thanks.

Thought I'd add that I do not work a paging file--I had changed that when an update changed my settings back to using one and shutdown suddenly took 2-3 minutes.

Is there a similar setting somewhere that might cause the switching between mail folders to be so slow?

How can I keep all folders from changing?
What I mean is, when I set Documents as Small Icons, how can I keep folders inside Documents from doing the same thing? Like when I go into My Received Files, I don't want the pictures to be small icons. I want them to be medium/large. But any change I make in a folder applies itself to every other...
