I have updated my windows to 11 (build 22000.132) and I am experiencing an issue on OneDrive. When I open the file explorer and click on the OneDrive folders, it takes long time to open my folders and sometimes it even freezes. Every time I click on the folder, it appears to be loading (as the mouse cursor would become a little small blue circle). Even tough I keep my folders and files on my local drive, the issue still persists. The folder loading behavior is normal on other non-OneDrive related folders in my local drives.
I experienced similar issues on my NAS-related folders and I suspect this issues would exist in network drives.

@dazuk i'm very sorry to say, but this solution didn't worked for me either.
OneDrive is as slow as before, every folder-opening takes around 3-5 seconds, and if there is a file clicked on most of the time i come into the name-changing procedure.
This issue does really affect my user-experience of Windows 11.

I've clean installed (with full drive wipe) on a new XPS 13 i7 evo laptop with Xe graphics. Getting the issues here. Was OK with OneDrive for business synced but got much worse when syncing SharePoint folders too. Hopefully Windows sort this out ASAP. Unusable for business.

I've rebuilt back to Win10.... Just couldn't live with the Explorer performance and was getting some odd BSOD's.
Just couldn't have my main work machine non-performant.
I'll not go to Win11 now until I see good reviews on Explorer/OneDrive performance.

That doesn't appear to have worked for me. Running 22000.318. It seems to be related to the number of files that are synced to the computer. OneDrive will run fine when I only have a couple OneDrive/SharePoint libraries synced, but as soon as I sync anything with a significant number of files File Explorer slows to a crawl, even after everything is fully caught up an synced. I've had to use a third-party file manager (Files) in order to maintain productivity.

Here is a solution to solve the very slow file explorer on Windows 11. The symptoms for me is a very long elapse time when, in the FileExplorer, I am going thru folders list (down key arrow) waiting 3 seconds the cursor to move... it is also the same elapse time to enter a folder.
I have applied many suggestions, none of them really fix the issue. Except F11 which improve a bit, but it work only for one Window at a time (not really usable). I found disconnecting all tenants for OneDrive and cleaning the OneDrive cache was bringing improvments (onedrive /reset). But still big big issue. Once all tenants reconnected for OneDrive Synchronisation the issue came back.
In fact, I do use a lot Teams/Sharepoint/OneDrive synchronisation (+5 tenants, +20 Teams projects, +50 folders with thousands of files). My guess was that the volume of OneDrive was an issue for Windows 11, which was confirmed by the fact the system is working better when tenats are disconnected.
I found that going thru a folder list, the File Explorer is apparently requesting status information to OneDrive process for each folder being listed. My guess was that OneDrive is king of waiting for timeout on folders not fully working for synchronisation.
So I searched for synchronised folders description in the registry, and I found old folders no longer being used. So I removed the old entries :
In Ordinateur\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace I cleanup old Sharepoint entries.
Then in Ordinateur\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SyncEngines\Providers\OneDrive I checked the LastModifiedTime and removed all old entries (easy to identify as I disconnected all tenants and reconnected before).
And BINGO ! It is now working perfeclty fine !
