Extremely Slow File Menu


New member
Hi Everyone,

I am using SW2011 and having this issue for some time. Whenever I click on file menu, it takes forever to get the menu on the screen and to give back the mouse control. I suspect of the recently opened files list, but could not find a way to reduce the list count and try. May it be reading those files in order to create a thumbnail view, i dont know..

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance..

The menu works perfectly fast when no part file ıs open. Once a file is
open -even a blank part or assy file- it's very slow. When you close the part file, it's back to normal
again. And it doesn't just block the program, it locks the complete operating system. Block time increases as you keep using the program.. Any different suggestions?
