Question about Computers & Internet
There are many excellent suggestions to help solve your problem of 'slow opening' folders in W98 & improve the efficiency of the system, but one underlying factor that always should be adhered to - otherwise it can cause the slow opening of all folders throughout the entire Hard Drive - is that within the My Documents folder it's necessary to keep the approx TOTAL number of Folders & Subfolders within it to under 100 ..best even to keep it under 75. The MD's folder has a unique operating structure and in some cases exhibits a flaw where if you place too many folders in it, the effects of that can cause the slow opening of all folders on that drive - and the more folders you open in a session - the slower it will get!
The fix is simple and effective: if you're noticing a slowdown when opening folders anywhere on your drive while you have more than 100 folders in MD's, then simply create another folder on your Desktop, or anywhere, and name it whatever you'd like, then Cut all excess folders out of the MD's folder and then Paste them into your new folder, and reboot. ..you'll see all your folders open normally now if you had the above anomaly.
