Optimize Folders

If you have a folder filled with many of the same kind of file (MP3s, pictures, etc.), then you probably notice that it can be a little…well, sluggish, sometimes when it comes to displaying everything.

That green status bar up top couldn’t be moving any slower, could it?

Did you know that you can optimize folders to make them load their contents faster?

Here’s how!

Just Right-Click on the folder you want to speed up and click Properties. Select the Customize tab. Under “Optimize this folder for” choose the setting that best describes the contents of the folder. If you’re looking to affect the entire folder and subfolders, put a check next to “Also apply this template to all subfolders”.


Press OK and you’re all set!

If you’d like to reverse this, just follow the same steps and put the optimization selector back to General Items and take the check mark off the subfolder option.
