Worked: (optional)

Short description of error
I whenever I open a new blend file or add an HDRI or do something else with the new filemanager it takes around 1m30s to even fill the filemanager with the blender side of things and then another 30s to read and display the files on my PC. almost 2mins to open a file is tooooo long.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
happens every time the filebrowser opens. easy temp fix would be to allow or add an option to keep the filebrowser in the current window. maybe.

Please test if it's also slow to open the file browser in the main window, in place of the 3D viewport.

Slowness may be due to opening a new window, but also could be related to changes for the display of external drivers, network drivers and folders.

blender is unresponsive for ~10 seconds, then the filebrowsers shows in the window and all files are instantly displayed. A lot faster then 2mins but also kind of long, all other blender tasks/opening other blender windows is faster and the windows explorer is faster showing the files too...

Anything else about my PC stats you need to know?

and now I just want to report back I didn't(!) update blender in the meantime but since yesterday it works flawless and opens the filemanager in no time. No idea what I changed, if anything at all! I only installed 7zip and pure ref since the last post, that shouldn't influce anything but I thought I'd mention it...

I wanted to check what blender version I am on. I found the "report a bug function" that already fills in all the required info here, which is very convenient, but is there a way to get the flash screen with the version on it to show up again once it is gone (or some other way to quickly check the blender version)?

You can click the Blender icon in the top left corner, that opens a menu to show the splash screen.
