How to Fix a Slow Loading Downloads Folder in Windows PC?


Hello YouTube. This is Praveen for TechEmpty. Here in this video I will be showing you the
solution to fix a slow loading downloads folder in Windows 10 or 8 or 7. Hit the like button and subscribe to this

in Windows Explorer, most folders do open quickly. However, when you access the Downloads folder,
which is one of the most frequent and important places on your computer, often takes 10 to
15 seconds or longer to fully load. While you watch in frustration, a status bar
in Explorer slowly fills itself for no apparent reason, even though you have a fast computer
with a SSD. This happens because, by default, Windows
will try to create thumbnails for the media which are in downloads folder, even if none
of them are media files. With a quick settings change, you can make
the Downloads folder open quickly in Windows 10, 8 or Windows 7. Let me show you how. First open the File Explorer or My Computer
and find the Downloads folder. Right click on the Downloads folder and choose
Properties. Now here select Customize and under ‘Optimize
this folder for’ choose ‘General Items’ instead of Pictures. Hit Apply and confirm the changes by choosing
Ok. That’s it. I hope you find this video useful. If you do, hit the like button and consider
