When creating a new folder in explorer, it takes forever to complete and the window appears to hang. Follow these steps to resolve.








The quick fix for me was to click on the View tab, under the Options drop down, select “Change folder and search options









Click the Clear
















Additionally, I’d rcommend running the following two commands one after the over in Command Prompt (Admin) [Windows key + X and select]

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

sfc /scannow
