Windows Performance Fix!

Hey guys,

Create Local WP sites in a separate folder. Do not use the default folder (C:\Users\YourUsername\Local Sites)

Sites running within the default folder are slow on Windows. They run lightning fast under any other folder. I hope this trick helps to end all performance issues for windows once and for all. I hope team fixes this bug in next release.

Hi @LocalWP_Windows - welcome to the Local community! :wave:

Thank you for sharing this tip with other members of the community.

Our team has discussed the hack you mentioned in this thread with other Local users and it does indeed appear to improve Windows performance.

That said, it is well on our radar to spend time enhancing the performance of Local for Windows machines.

Thank you again, we appreciate you!
