Hey people , I just upgraded from win 7 to win 10 ( Clean install on new Disk ) some bothering problems I'm facing which one of them is lagging of windows explorer that occurs randomly most of the time on system idle ( Looks like being under load make it less likely to happen )
Doesn't matter which device what folder or directory it lags most of the times and loses scrolling smoothness ( the mouse cursor passes through files and the selectivity animation lags out or the moving window along the screen is not smooth , happens with some applications or software too )
Moving mouse cursor through task bar or start menu lags as well as moving mouse in settings or other windows elements
it looks like I'm going through an old laggy hdd although it's not been like that in windows 7 and I'm using SSDs and all my devices are performing well in benchmarks
Tried SFC scan and nothing changed
Power option is set on performance mode
I don't face FPS drop or performance issues in games or heavy software ( Video encoding and etc .. ) Loading Files or watching big files seems ok too
moving icons in task bar lags too . . right clicking in browser lags too

Here is what happening : View: https://imgur.com/a/ipD3FAT


My Specs :
Core i7 6700k
Asus maximus viii hero
GTX 1080
16 GB Ram 2400 MHZ
Samsung 256gb Pro
And 5 HDDs

  2. under advanced startup, click restart now button
  3. this restarts PC in a blue menu
  4. choose troubleshoot

  6. choose startup options
  7. click the restart button
  8. choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.

updated gpu driver with cleaning it first by ddu which didn't help

Looks like it doesn't happen in safe mode and it's 21H1 version
