I've got a directory inside my personal folder that has a few hundred items in it. Since most of them are installers for different programs each one has its own icon. Problem is: when I open that folder in windows explorer it takes over half a minute to load up all the icons. Meanwhile, everything else gets laggy. Is there a way I can stop windows from loading up and showing icons for the applications in that folder?
EDIT: Changing the viewmode doesn't seem to help. Be it Details, List, or Tiny, they all show the icons.
