When changing the order of a folder (for example, from ‘Name’ to ‘Date’) Windows Explorer takes an excessive amount of time (up to a minute) to update the folder list.
Whilst waiting the address bar has a green progress bar slowly loading.
To resolve, change the folder type to ‘General Items’ this can be done by:
- Right-click in a blank area of the folder
- Select ‘Properties’
- Select the ‘Customize’ tab
- Under ‘Optimize this folder for:’ select ‘General Items’
- Click ‘OK’ to save the changes.
