Excel Takes Long time to save a file
  

On my colleague's machine an Excel 2003 file takes 4 or 5 seconds to save On mine the same file take between 22 and 25 seconds.

Why?

My PC has a stonking big powerful dual-core processor (the laptop cost
1000)
I have many gigs of free-space
My disk is thoroughly defragged

My colleague has a very run of the mill business laptop. For other things my PC is faster or the same as his What can I do, because this is becoming frustrating.

Thanks

You may have many temporary files on your computer that need to be cleaned out. It could even be that somehow, your Excel is corrupted in some manner.

If this occurs only with this one file, make a copy of the file to a removable device and then remove all traces of the file from your computer. Copy the file back to your computer and see if there is a difference.

It is advisable to remove temporary files from cache. go to start -> run -> %temp%-> remove all temporary files frequently restart your machine and also use all in cleaner.

Make sure other bulk excel spreadsheets are closed.
