Delay in starting command prompt

Super User Asked by batchcoding____s on December 5, 2020

There is a weird problem with my command prompt.
Whenever I start it, there’s a delay. The windows opens quickly as it should, but there is a Blank Time, before the command line displays this message:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.3.9600]
(c) 2013 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

This delay doesn’t seem random, its always like 3 seconds. The blank period appears something like this (the cursor is blinking) –

The exact same problem also occurs with-

  • Batch file
  • Powershell
  • Git Bash
  • Cygwin Bash Terminal

This thing only started happening recently.

If you think my system is slow, then I have no background running programs. And earlier it used to be perfect.

And by the way- How much system resources would a simple command window require?

What could have happened, and How do I fix it?
