SW 2016 Interface very sluggish


New member
I just installed SW on a new laptop. It's 2016 64bit on a Win10 system and I've never used this version before so I don't know if this is normal or not.

When i hover the mouse pointer over any of the buttons in the workspace (view HUD for example) nothing happens for 3-5 seconds. Then I click on the drop down and it takes another 3-5 seconds to display the options for that button. It doesn't matter what is loaded to work on and even the "X" button to close the application takes a long time to activate.

Is this normal? Is there anyway to reduce the delay?

Thanks, Lance
