My Computer



I don't know why I have a very slow response with I click on "My Computer"... when I click on it ... most of the time it will take 5-10 seconds to open up... but it's not my hardisk problem... coz once I get into that screen I can browse anything quite quickly... so.. do you guys know what's happening?? is there anyway to tweak it?? THanks


I'm sorry Hal...

It just cause it has to scan all your drives/partitions and get all the information free space etc, should be anything to worryabout


but is there anything to make it open faster?? ie. disable useless scan or something else?? sometimes it's really annoying..

come to think of it, I did do this...you're gonna love this;

this is pretty good, take a look.

you can add the contents of the control panel to the start menu.;

If your using the XP start menu right ckick start click properties then click the start menu tab then click customize
then click the advanced tab then under start menu items look for control panel and put a dot next to Display as menu click OK.

This gives you the entire contents of Control Panel when highlighted.

if you're using the clasic menue, or your on an earlier os...this will work also;

Add Control Panel To Start

Right click on the Start button and select Explore.

Click on on blank spot in the right pane.

Select New and Folder.

cut and paste the entire next line...nos space after the last bracket:

Control Panel.{21EC2020-3AEA-1069-A2DD-08002B30309D}

also, you can drag my computor down to your tray...that'll make the contents become a pop up from the taskbar

another good one is to drag it to the quicklaunch bar

...take your pick from any of these

This will help speed things up slightly:-
Open "My Computer", click "View" on the toolbar, click "Choose Details..." and untick all the items you can live without.
