Win10: Photos app opens extremely slow

The Photos app on Windows 10 is just painfully slow.

1. go to Settings > Privacy
2. under App permissions on the left, scroll down to Pictures
3. turn OFF Allow apps to access your pictures library
4. go to App & features
5. select Microsoft Photos > Advanced options > Reset
6. open Photos
7. click on the overflow menu (three dots) > Settings
8. remove any folders from collection
9. turn OFF Linked duplicates
10. turn OFF People

Alternatively, you can change the default program back to Windows Photo Viewer.
