slow menus: Font dialog/New menu/file context menu

18 Dec 2017, 05:02

I'm using Windows 7 and some things are often unacceptably slow. So much so that I avoid using them. I've put some workarounds in brackets.
Notepad: Format, Font... [dll injection and WM_SETFONT]
Explorer: right-click, New [COM to create new file/folder via a hotkey]
Explorer/Recent Items: right-click [recreate Recent Items, or, hotkey to open files with a secondary program]

I'm posting here in case anyone has some good ideas to speed these up. Web searches haven't been too fruitful. Thanks for reading.
