When I right click on a folder anywhere on my computer, the wait time is very slow.

You even can see in the task manager that "googledrivesync.exe" goes from 0-1% to 3-4%. If you close backup and sync tool it works normally.

Windows 10 64 bit 1809


This is really an annoying issue and it's there seems to be no patch for it since this post. Will there be more work done in the future?

It is really annoying issue! I work with load of data everyday hence I've got One Drive and Google Drive availably running all day long. However, the shell context menu seems obviously heavier with GD.
I used an organization's laptop so whenever I need to install a software I have to apply for IT permission that will take time and raise alot of question. IT'S REALLY REALLY REALLY ANNOYING. 
When is it solved without any third party soft?

There is a quick fix:
  1. Download Autoruns and run it as Administrator (no install required): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/downloads/autoruns
  2. In the Filter field type "GDContextMenu"
  3. Uncheck all entries (only the ones from Google Drive should be visible if you filter correctly)
Done!


Notice: the Google Drive option might come back to the right click menu! This is because Backup and Sync updates automatically.
In that case just repeat the same process: at step 3) you might see 4 entries instead of 2, just uncheck all of them.

Hope this is useful! But please Google fix this already...

Yup, i wish someone from Google would get involved into this..
For now I renamed C:\Program Files\Google\Drive\contextmenu64.dll and after restart Google Drive menu does not show. Works only inside google folder.

There is an option in settings to disable the right-click menu (and sync icons)
In my case right-clicking on a folder causes the menu to close after a few seconds

The slow right-click windows menu is still happening and even unchecking the "Show file sync status icons and right click menu" doesn't work. It is quite annoying!!

Yeap, program disregards that option. Had to regedit out with "Autoruns" tool suggested above.
