In Windows 7, after performing some operations and returning to the desktop, we are used to right-clicking to refresh the desktop. However, if the desktop refresh response is very slow, or even takes dozens of seconds to respond, it will undoubtedly be very annoying. So, how to solve the slow response of right-clicking to refresh the desktop in Windows 7? Today I will share the solution to the slow response of right-clicking to refresh the desktop in Windows 7.
The solutions are as follows:
1. Press Win and R keys on the keyboard at the same time to open the “Run” dialog box. Enter regedit in the dialog box and click “OK” to open the Registry Editor.
2. After opening the Registry Editor, find “Registry” → “HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT” → “Directory” → “Background” → “shellex” → “ContextMenuHandlers” in sequence.
3. Under “ContextMenuHandlers”, only keep the “New” option and delete all other options. If an error occurs when deleting an option, just click “OK”.
4. Finally exit the Registry Editor and test the refresh effect. If it is still invalid, you can restart the system and test again.
By following the above steps, you can solve the problem of slow response when right-clicking to refresh the desktop in Windows 7. The other options under ContextMenuHandlers in the Registry Editor may cause the desktop refresh to slow down. Deleting them can speed up the refresh and improve the experience. If the solution does not work, restarting the system may also work because restarting can clear the memory occupied by the system and speed up the system’s operation.
