RStudio has become slow when creating new R script



Hi, my R Studio, running in windows 10, has suddenly become slow when creating R script files using the menu command File->New->R Script.

The R Studio halts for about 2 minutes and then it continues to execute, efter creating the new R script.

R Studio behaves the same if I create a .txt file as well.

I have reinstalled the R Studio and tried to delete the R Studio desktop folder.

Thank's for your help.
