Finder Slow on First Start

After using my Mac for a while, Finder started to become slow every time I started it for the first time and after closing it with the X. The delay was 3 or 4 seconds, which seems like an eternity when you open Finder so frequently.

What I found is that Finder is slow when I look at “All My Files”. That's the default favorite that opens but I never use it. I switched by doing the following.

Open Finder. In the menu at the top select Finder, Preferences.

On the General tab, select a different folder in the New Finder windows show drop-down. I selected my name in the list so that my home folder is the first to open.
