Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It only takes a minute to sign up. Connect and share knowledge within a single location that is structured and easy to search. I’ve got a couple of shortcuts on my desktop and on some of them I’ve configured the “Shortcut key” to a keyboard combination. This naturally opens up using notepad. Double-clicking on the icon always opens up the text file immediately.
Using the keyboard shortcut though is sometimes very seconds slow. Note that during that time CPU utilization does not rise. This happens to all my machines both old and new ultra fast boxes in Windows XP various versions and Windows 7.
There are tons of questions about this but no solution. Edit : The behavior is not consistent. I have 30 desktop shortcut and 5 of them have keyboard shortcuts assigned. I’m not interested in software alternatives for this Windows functionality. I want to know what the problem is and how to solve it. The original question deals with Windows 7, but it’s happening now for new reasons in Windows Here’s a general answer that deals with both situations. There’s an excellent explanation of the problem and its cause at the MSDN post Why is there sometimes a long delay between pressing a hotkey for a shortcut and opening the shortcut?
Executive summary: before launching a program via its shortcut key, Windows first polls all currently running programs and asks “Is this your shortcut key? The problem happens when a window somewhere refuses to answer the question. This can be a program that’s generally non-responsive for some reason, though it can also happen for other reasons see below. Windows waits 3 seconds before muttering “jerk” under its breath and moving on to the next window to ask it the same shortcut question.
Now that you know your culprit, you get to decide: is that program worth the delay it causes? For example, Adobe Creative Cloud has sometimes caused problems for me, so I just tell it not to run when Windows starts.
I can still use Illustrator etc. If you can’t live without the program, either live with the shortcut key delay or, as “user is fine” suggests, try a macro program like AutoHotKey.
Windows Action Center can also cause the delay. This might be a problem in Windows 8 too; I skipped from 7 to Whenever you see this:. Click the icon and clear the notifications, then the icon will look like this, and Action Center should no longer cause a shortcut key delay:. If a notification comes up repeatedly and you find it unhelpful, right click it and tell Windows to turn off notifications for that application. Even with no notifications showing, I’ve often cleared up this problem simply by opening and closing Action Center.
You can do this quickly with the [Windows]-A shortcut key combination. There might be others culprits as well. The significant thing is that these are foreground applications that, for some reason, appear as background processes even though you might not have actually run them. This problem might happen with other apps, and might be limited to Metro apps TBD.
After using techniques 2 and 3, these rogue background processes no longer appear on my computer. This Windows build has introduced a new and pernicious shortcut inhibitor.
As soon as you start Windows, go to task manager. You have the problem if you see Settings running as a background task:. If you kill this task, shortcut keys will be fast again, but the Settings app will reappear a while later, re-introducing the problem. But for Windows Home and Professional users, “Settings” does not appear in the background app list.
If anyone knows of a way to make it appear, please post in the comments. I don’t know whether this happened because of installing Build In any case, disabling Settings as a background app has finally! One one of my laptops, whenever Adobe Creative Commons is running in background I sometimes experience a delay lasting as long as 30 seconds before launching an app. That’s 10 times the timeout Window uses before giving up on a non-responsive process, so something else must be going on in this case.
This made the delay disappear on my system. My personal experience was that there was a program that was delaying Windows’ handling of the hotkey.
For myself it was Steam, for Andreas it was Akamai. To diagnose which application is responsible simply close an application and try your hotkey again. Once you figure out who the culprit is, decide whether it’s a service that you can deal with not running at all times. I know this is a fairly old question, but after not finding an answer I stumbled upon the solution and felt the need to share it with the community. The problem might have some to do with how Windows finds these shortcuts.
Any reasonable person might expect that they store the shortcut data in the registry, the registry resides in RAM, and they put everything else in there. As you can see in the picture, after trying to trace down where it was in the registry it’s not , I found the change in the shortcut own data itself.
There are 2 major locations where this data is scanned from, anywhere in all of the Start menu, and via the desktop folder. When people find that removing some program, or some web program, “fixes” the problem, maybe it has to do with items, or mappings, or some unapproved stuff in the Start menu or the desktop? After realising the method used, it was easy enough to take the advice of using another method other than windows, to do the same things.
The Notepad shortcut method used, is going to add microbes of delay also. A shortcut to a text file itself, that will eventually open a Notepad, will get to go through a fun process. Find the class bounce around in the registry, find the associated program, open that program, and pass in that parameter.
Many programs like to stuff their program path into the environment variable path, they have even broken the “search path” there by making the line to long. This has the computer finding the file direct without searching or guessing, and passing the file to it immediately.
The quotes are only necessary when there are spaces. Create the shortcut for the program instead notepad , and add a parameter for the. TXT file into the program shortcut. OK it’s like DOS now. To check the environment variables which is only for specific issues , go to “System”, and in the “System Properties”, in “Advanced” bring up the “Environment Variables” and look at the mess in the PATH variable.
Once I killed this 2 apps in task manager, my keyboard shortcut launched without the 3 seconds delay. Yes, I have to kill both. I decided to uninstall both apps since I don’t need them. To learn how to uninstall built-in apps, I have followed this page successfully For me Windows 10 x64 helped disabling SuperFetch feature. This service called SysMain in Services is causing start of the Application Frame Host process several times per day and this process is responsible for slow shortcuts.
I cannot reproduce your problem and do not remember having it on any of my computers. I do not notice any difference to opening a shortcut by clicking. I have only very few of these shortcuts, though, 2 tops. Hopefully, they will work faster. I am using them anyway and keep them on a flash drive to use on multiple computers. As this does not happen in Safe mode, and as I myself have never encountered such a slow-down, some product that you have installed must be causing the problem.
I suggest using Autoruns to turn off startup programs in bunches, until you narrow it down to the one that is causing it. You could also examine your installed products using Revo Uninstaller Freeware and uninstall products that you don’t need any more or that you don’t like. Google carefully for products that you don’t know. I would also suggest, for the future, to install some security suite. There are lots of free antivirus products, as well as free anti-adware , and not having some of them is just asking for trouble, same as not locking your door at night.
I am not suggesting that your computer is infected, but that is one possibility for such a weird behavior, so full-scans using several well-known antivirus products would still be a good idea.
The reason for this is DDE. I don’t know the specific technical details this problem generally boils down to a message queue meltdown. Things get backed up and everything with a dependency on DDE takes forever. In extreme cases even in command windows sometimes you can see letters you type will be lagged for the same reason. The only way I know to avoid this problem is to avoid running certain applications over time and by trial and error you will notice when running cause delay.
There might be a way to tweak things such as changing timeouts or isolation of DDE broadcast domains or tools to look into DDE but I am clueless on this topic.
The solution to get rid of the delay was to disable Akamai Netsession client. There are two Netsession entries, one of them probabli spawning the other – selecting end process tree kills them both. If they are quick and nice now, make the change permanent either by uninstalling Akamai NetSession Interface from Add Remove programs in the control panel, or by disabling it in msconfig so that it doesn’t start automatically. However I’d uninstall it, and only install it again if it is needed.
It’s just a download agent that some companies use for downloading their software I believe Microsoft and Adobe has used it. Note: depending on your version of Windows, the Service once known as Superfetch is now known as SysMain. After I Disabled the SysMain Service , I had no delays [ for a month ] when using the keyboard shortcuts that I defined in the Properties dialog for most shortcuts on my desktop.
