My windows OS build is 1809 and recently i have noticed that after right clicking and hovering over to New option freezes the menu or gives a lag to show available option.This started happen after I moved Camera roll and screenshot folder to a usb drive and deleted them and restored them back since screenshots were not being saved and saw this issue after the update.Is this a update issue or some fix that needs to be done ? I have tried ShellEXT and have 3rd party programs installed save for McAfee,Java,Python

    Hard to say with so little infomation. Maybe your hard drive is slow, maybe is about to be full, etc; Please deliver specs of your computer, update dates, etc. – dmb Feb 15 '19 at 18:10
  • What you describe isn’t a known issue with 1809. It is either an undiscovered unreported issue or an issue unique to your system – Ramhound Feb 15 '19 at 18:34

    I would suggest open the registry editor - Regedit.exe. Right click on HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and search for ShellNew. For each entry you find check that the FileName, ItemName, iconpath values where exit looks OK. I suspect that Explorer is trying to find a icon or a path under these keys that either doesn't exist, etc.. – HelpingHand Feb 15 '19 at 19:57
  • Right click menu delays are often related to Shell options or extensions. Try @HelpingHand's solution, and take a look at the program ShellExt – BlueDrink9 Feb 15 '19 at 20:35
  • HDD is like 96% empty and tried shellext, no third app is installed save for java, python, McAfee – Vishnu Ezhuthachan Feb 16 '19 at 5:29

This issue was caused by deletion of System made/present folders like camera and screenshot. The issue was resolved after manual and external(downloading update from Microsoft servers instead from Windows settings app) update to Windows 10 V1909
