Windows 10 slow logins

Tags windows

Through research and testing, Michigan Tech IT has determined that Windows 10 login times are slowed down when a large number of files, folders, and shortcuts are placed on your desktop. A variety of documentation can be found online about this issue. 

Therefore, we recommend:

  1. Avoid storing files and folders on the desktop. These items should be placed either in their home drive or the Multidrive.
  2. Limit the icons on their desktop to the applications you use the most. We recommend using the start menu to launch less frequently used applications.
