You probably are using an HDD (versus an SSD), and have a lot of plugins.

I am seeing the same issue on both my computer without ssd and on my laptop with ssd. It seems to me that this didn't happen before the .13 update. Is there any way to fix this? I'll try removing my plugins and see whether that speeds it up.

Just rename the /Effects/ folder (right click > Rename) and restart paint.net. That will ensure paint.net doesn't load any plugins. If the speed of startup is improved you have your solution - fewer plugins :)

Hello,

yes, the renaming solves the problem.

I use SSD and in the folder effects are 104 files. Some begin with TR...

That's not really much. I have here over 300 files in my Effects folder and PDN works well. TRs... means plugins by Techno Robbo.

My advice: redownload fresh copies of the plugin packs you actually use and install them one-by-one until the start time becomes just right.

You have something in that folder which is causing a problem. @BoltBait's suggestion is a good one, but first I'd clear out all the files in the old Effects folder (or just create a new one and leave Effect.BAK as is in case you need to identify a missing plugin).
