Fixing PHPMyAdmin & Database Connection working slow on windows 8

Hi there guys, today I’m going to tell you a little trick on how to fix a problem which many of you coders have with windows 8.I had that problem too and I was very annoyed by the fact that PHP My Admin was working so slow almost 2 seconds delay, which is extremely slow.

Instead of this:

If you want to fix the delay on PHP My Admin you need to find this file and edit it ( xampp/phpMyAdmin/ )
