>> Hey all, welcome to Tekzilla Daily, I'm Veronica Belmont. Want to speed up file browsing in Windows? Well, by default your machine search is for the network printers and folders each and every time you open up a new Explorer window. In an office environment this might be helpful, otherwise it's better to turn it off and save yourself some time. To disable this function just click tools then folder options.
