When you right-click a folder or file in Windows Explorer, you may experience:
- A significant decrease in network performance.
- Any copy operation that is currently occurring may appear to hang.
- All music and video playback may be distorted.
- CPU usage may approach 100%.
NOTE: When the right-click context menu closes, performance returns to normal.
To workaround this behavior, select the object in Window Explorer before your right-click it.
If you turn off transition effects for menus and ToolTips, this behavior will not occur:
1. In Control Panel, double-click Display.
2. Select the Appearance tab.
3. In the Effects dialog, clear the Use the following transition effect for menus and tooltips box.
4. Press OK, Apply, and OK.
