Microsoft is investigating Windows 10 bug that causes taskbar to slow down

A Windows 10 bug or design flaw is causing taskbar’s jump list (right-click menu) to slow down on some computers. Windows 10 taskbar comes with a feature called ‘Jump List’, which has been around since Windows 7 and it allows you to right-click an app’s icon to access frequently used items.

For example, when you right-click Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge icon pinned to the taskbar, you can find recent items you were working on, frequently visited websites, and option to close the browser’s window.

If you closely observe the animation of taskbar’s right-click many, you’ll notice that there is a delay of 200-250ms until the menu appears.
