Sendto command !!

Can any one explain why the sendto command takes between 15 to 30 seconds to appear. It does not happen on my desktop where it is almost instant.

First, open the Run command by going to Start - Run
Type send to and hit Enter
A new window should open up listing the items that appear in your slow Send To menu
Delete all the unwanted items present there, they’re the cause for the slow loading Send To menu
If this doesn’t solve the problem, you’ll have to open Windows Explorer, go to Tools - Folder Options - and under the ‘View’ Tab, uncheck ‘Automatically search for network folders and printers’

That’s how you fix the slow loading ‘Send To’ menu in Windows
