How to fix the issue when your downloads folder takes a long time to open in Windows

Whenever I would open my downloads folder, it would take about 20 seconds to list the files. It only happened on my downloads folder and it was very frustrating.

To fix it, do the steps below.

  1. Right click your download folder (the actual folder, not the shortcut in favourites)
  2. Go to customize
  3. Select documents from the drop down
  4. If documents was already selected, choose “also apply template to all subfolders”
