Windows 11 File Explorer:

I have quick access items to network shares (via UNC path) in Windows 11 File Explorer. These UNC path are located on servers, that I connect to via VPN. When VPN is not connected and therefor these shares are not accessible, then every start of file explorer is delayed by 1-2 min. It seems that it tries to access these unavailable servers.

Ho can I get rid if this behaviour? Is there a way to set a much smaller timeout for file explorer trying to access such UNC path?
