If Edge is on another Drive, could it affect Windows startup speed?

Hi friends,
I moved the Edge Stable and Edge Canary folders to drive D:
And then I created symbolic links with the MKLINK command so that the moved folders appear to be in their respective locations on the C: drive, so for Windows it's like the folders continued in their respective default locations.

After that I noticed that Windows startup slowed down.
This was the only change I made to the computer in the last 5 days, and it was only after this change that Windows startup slowed down.
Is there any connection between the startup slowing down and the Edge folders being on another drive?

Hello
I'm glad you're doing the experience, but once I did likewise with other programs and everything was fine until windows update, I suggest you restore the default location!
