You might be experiencing that your explorer is taking time for loading. One solution to minimize the loading time is to disable the thumbnail preview. The thumbnails are reduced size version of your content whether it is picture or videos. This thumbnail preview will help us to quickly find desired content from destination folder by the process of skimming.

The loading time of your explorer is due to the fact that the explorer application will scan the content and generate its thumbnails when we open the explorer or a particular folder. This ambit can be nullified by disabling the thumbnail preview generation. However some of the users like photoshop users, entertainment users, HTML developers are addicted by thumbnails because they really need it. They don’t need to bother about this post, because this process is not applicable for them.

Now I am going to explain the process of disabling thumbnail preview. Open up your windows explorer from your desktop or start menu or by hitting Windows + E button. Click on the menu organize on the top left of your explorer. From the menu select the menu item labeled Folder and Search Options. Check out the figure below.

After selecting the menu item another window will open which contain three tabs. On the Window click on the view tab and enable checkbox that is labeled Always shows icons, never thumbnails.

Restart your explorer, this time you can see magnificent difference in loading time.
