Improve Sitecore Experience Editor Performance by Disabling Number of Locked Items Counter

The Sitecore Experience Editor is not the fastest tool in the shed, but you can improve the performance slightly by disabling the counter on the “My items” button that shows how many items you currently have locked:

Number of locked items on button

Number of locked items on button

The setting is called WebEdit.ShowNumberOfLockedItemsOnButton and is available from Sitecore 9. You find the setting in the \App_Config\Sitecore\Experience Editor\Sitecore.ExperienceEditor.config file.

To disable the counter, simply set the value to false:

<configuration xmlns:env="" xmlns:patch="">
      <setting name="WebEdit.ShowNumberOfLockedItemsOnButton" value="false"/>
