File indexing improvements in Windows 11

If, for example, you use Windows 11 on a computer that has hard drives, or in general you have a somewhat slow computer, the company’s operating system is going to integrate an interesting improvement from now on.

This novelty is already integrated into the Windows 11 Build 22526 available to Insiders. The improvement has to do with the form of the system of index file locations, which is used to find important files faster when using File Explorer.

And this is one of the main complaints that users with Windows 11 have, where users find poor performance in the file explorer, with very high load times and even crashes. This is especially inconvenient when using hard drives. Although the main unit of the computer is a SSDIf we have a multi-TB hard drive full of files, loading times will continue to be slow; especially if we have many files.

Will be available at the end of the year
