Speed up vSphere client on Windows 7
KB article 1027836 explains that the vSphere client may seem slow when running on Windows 7 systems, and that this is especially noticeable when maximixing the window, which forces a redraw of all the panes inside the client.
To improve vSphere client performance under Windows 7, you can disable a feature called desktop composition as follows:
- Right-click the shortcut for the vSphere Client and click Properties.
- Click the Compatibility tab.
- Select Disable desktop composition.
- Click OK.
- Run the vSphere Client.
