The Projects view is loading very slowly and it has delays in providing the project information.
This information can be found in Sdl.ProjectApi.xml file:

Steps to follow in order to change the path:

1. Go to  C:\Users\[User_Name]\AppData\Roaming\Trados\Trados Studio\Studio17   for Trados Studio 2022 or use the shortcut %appdata% in "Search Windows".
    Go to  C:\Users\[User_Name]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\SDL Trados Studio\Studio16  for Trados Studio 2021
    Go to: C:\Users\[User_Name]\AppData\Roaming\SDL\ProjectApi\   for Trados Studio 2019

2. Open Sdl.ProjectApi.xml in a text editor (Notepad/ Notepad++) and change the path: 
<LocalProjectServerInfo LocalDataFolder="C:\Users\[User_Name]\Documents\Studio 2017(Studio2019)\Projects" UserId="DOMAIN\[User_Name]" /> with the path where you want to save the projects information.

Root Cause
The project.xml file is not saved locally. The issue appears when the Sdl.ProjectApi.xml file is saved on a shared drive or on a network.
