However, I have just checked and to my surprise, Faststone can view NEF images instantly!

If it's "instant", perhaps you are viewing with the default setting, which is is to open the NEF's embedded JPG preview and not the actual raw file?

That could be it.

However, just to point it out that I don't use Windows 10 Photo app to view RAW files, only used for JEPG files and with that, it's still very slow. I use Nikon View for RAW files.

But I didn't realise that Faststone viewer has an ability to view RAW files quickly which is an icing on the cake.
