PS slow to access files

Wondering if any PC experts out there can explain this behavior please? Anytime I get a dialog box to connect to my files, it is very slow during the initial connection. It's not just Photoshop, I also get the same thing when try to upload something to the web, like to Facebook for instance. Computer is amazing overall, Windows 11 PC, OS and graphics updated, PS and Adobe CC updated. This is not really a new behavior, but it is starting to bug me. I would not say anything is "broken", my computer is top notch and fast. It's just slow when first accessing drives/folders. It is my intuition that it is first doing a quick scan of my drives to see what is available? I've got 2 NVME drives, an internal SSD and an internal platter disk, plus a couple of external SSD's. Video will show that it takes a while to get to my files, but once connected, it is lightning fast going forward. Thanks in advance experts!

How does it behave if you open directly from Windows Explorer, or from Bridge? And how does Windows Explorer itself respond if you just open that from Windows?

 

File Open and Save are operating system dialogs, not Photoshop dialogs. Photoshop is just calling them - which isn't to say there couldn't be a Photoshop problem, but it's just as likely to be OS-related. Hard to say, I don't think I have ever heard of this before.

Thanks, yes, I mentioned that, it's the same from all angles, like uploading a photo to a web broweser, not just Photoshop. Just posting here because there are a lot or smart people and it certainly affects my Photoshop work.
