Disable Network Printer Search

 

 

When browsing through shared folders and network computers Explorer can slow down when it is searching the local network for printers.  This sounds like a great feature and may be useful for some but I would rather disable it to get maximum performance when browsing through folders.

1. Hit Alt to bring up the menubar if it is not already on the screen.

2. Click on Tools and select Folder Options.

3. On the View Tab, uncheck Automatically search for network printers.
