Ubuntu: 20.04 Laptop: asus zephyrus M(dual boot, i7-9750h, 1660ti, 8gb ram)

Accessing the File Manager from the Files icon in the Ubuntu Activities panel:

  • No problem in launching the "Files" on clicking in Activities panel. But afterwards selecting & opening the folders is very slow, After clicking a folder to open, it is taking more than 10 second to open & load the contents of folder.
  • I installed another file manager "dolphin"& it is working smoothly.
