Nautilus Launch is Slow

I've just installed Zorin 16 Pro and the only issue I have found is a painfully slow open of Files. Each time I click the application to launch it, I wait for around 60 seconds before it then appears; even then, sometimes it states that it is 'ready' but then I have to click the Files icon again before it appears...

Anything I can do to narrow this down and solve it? It's not a show stopper, but it could certainly get frustrating!

Many thanks to you all,



Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

You can try uninstall Nautilus and install them again.

sudo killall nautilus

sudo apt-get purge nautilus

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install nautilus

Let see if this helps


If same issue appear after,
You can run Nautilus from terminal to check if any error pop out
