    Fix long load times switching between open parts/drawing

    Jonathan Gourlie

      Does anybody else have issues when switching between opened parts/drawings in solidworks?  The vast majority of times that I have multiple parts and drawings open and click on the Solidworks icon in the windows task bar at the bottom of the window to switch to a different part/drawing it causes solidworks to freeze for 10-45 seconds before finally switching to the different window.  The parts in question are often located on a server, however, often times the wait time to switch is longer than it would take to initially open the file.  I highly doubt it is hardware related since I am running a 10-core 3.1 ghz E5-2687W processor with plenty of ram and a solid state drive.


      Any help from someone who has had this issue or knows how to fix it would be greatly appreciated!
