[digiKam-users] New user - software super slow

Hi, everyone. I'm new with DigiKam.
I'm having major issues with it. It's so slow that I basically can't use
it at all. It's constantly timing out and even crashed once.
Today, I opened the software and tried to move the window to my main
monitor to make it maximized. Every time I grabbed the window, it would
go into "not responding." After 10 minutes of just trying to move the
window, I gave up and forced the software closed.
When it does run, the thumbs never fully load. It also is super slow in
anything I do. Just twirling open a sub-directory takes about three
minutes. Then I click on a file and it goes into "not responding" again
for a minute or so.
I have no idea what is wrong?
I don't have any issues with other software, like Directory Opus, Adobe
Bridge, for FileCenter, that handle much of the same types of file tasks.
My computer is a high-power machine built for video editing and gaming
(not that I game).
- Windows 10 (latest updates)
- 16GB Ram
- i7 processor
My main location for media is on a USB 3.0 external drive.
Any help would be appreciated. Looks like it could be great software if
I can get it to work.
