Absolutely not the cause of the problem. If you had so little
RAM in the computer that you couldn't even down arrow through a
files and folders list, you couldn't run any programs except so
slowly you wouldn't use the machine.

Both thoughts to consider. Thanks. I wouldn't know where to go
looking for the virtual storage setting.

I hate to suggest this because I would hope that this
kind of thing has been eliminated since I last did software
It sounds to me that what you are experiencing is like
what used to happen when a program had a memory leak. As
time went by and more and more events happened memory would
fill up and things would slow down.
I would expect that if this were the case many more of us
would be seeing this behavior too but so far it doesn't
sound like there are very many.
Is this possible?
Another thought is that have you checked to make sure the
virtual storage setting is high enough on your system? This
used to happen if virtual storage was set too low. Sorry, it
has been too long since I last worked with virtual storage and
I can't seem to find where this setting is on Windows 10.
Maybe someone else on here can suggest how to find it.
I hope this helps.

First of all, I'm still getting used to the idea that File
Explore now uses ribbons rather than the menus on my former
Windows 7 installation.
What's bothering me more is the sluggishness when moving
around through files and folders. There seems to be between a
quarter and a half second delay after each press of the arrow
and enter keys. Same with the backspace.
First question: is there a way to toggle between folders and
ribbons, or am I stuck? I'm guessing the answer to be stuck.
Next, is there a way to speed up movement through navigating
files and folders? As far as I can tell, I have all visuals
and animations turned off. The sluggishness remains, and
increases over time. Starting and stopping the "Windows
Explorer" process in Task Manager seems to make things less
slow, but still not normal for a few minutes, then things get
more and more sluggish again.
In addition, is there anything in NVDA that I can check to see
if it would help in the new sluggishness? I just miss the
snappiness I had in Windows 7.
If anyone knows what I can do, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
