Windows 10 built-in apps take a long time to open when others don't

Rafa Pramudya Susanto 0 Reputation points

Lately when I open windows 10 default applications such as notepad, disk management, control panel, explorer.exe is always slow. and when I turn on the laptop a black screen appears, cursor and then loading taskbar appears. and also when I open a dialog file such as select file box to upload to google drive, save as box to save file.

However, when I open heavy applications such as chrome, visual studio code, adobe, it takes less than 5 seconds to open.

Here are the specifications of my laptop

  • Intel i3 5005U
  • 8gb RAM
  • 512gb SSD
  • Windows 10 22H2

I have tried many ways and solutions:

  1. sfc /scannow
  2. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth, DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
  3. Disable unnessecary services
  4. Disable Startup Program
  5. Run a clean booT
  6. Settings > System > About > Advanced system settings > Performance settings, and select "Adjust for best performance of programs"
  7. Update Windows 10 to the latest version
  8. Update BIOS, Drivers and other hardware
  9. Repair In-Place Upgrade Windows 10

But the default windows application is still slow, while the others are not. Even windows explorer takes 20 - 30 seconds to open

Please help me, although it doesn't have much effect but this problem is annoying

    Hi Rafa Pramudya Susanto,

    Thank you for posting in Q&A forum.

    First, you could try uninstalling the update and see if that resolves the issue. To do this, go to Settings > Update & Security > Windows Update > View update history > Uninstall updates. Find the update in question and click Uninstall.

    If uninstalling the update does not solve the problem, try a clean boot to eliminate the impact of other applications and then see if the problem persists.

    I hope the information above is helpful.

    Best regards
