Anything over 0.3 seconds is easily noticeable to the average human brain. This difference is well over that threshold. For a task that I perform many times a day, it is an annoying regression and I'm simply looking for insight. If you have nothing constructive to say, please move along.

I think it takes longer for the application to start from the superbar, because of the little anination it does when you click the icon.
Try turning off all Windows animations. That should help your speeds a bit.
(Or just turn off "animations in the taskbar".)

Do you have any other programs installed or just Windows itself?
If you have security software try disabling it. Same with startup/background processes.

I do have other software installed now. Just a few common programs (like Google Chrome). I was having this problem before I installed them, though. I disabled all of my security software and startup programs, rebooted, and still have the problem. Interestingly enough, if I right click the File Explorer icon on the taskbar and click on one of the jump list entries, it opens just as quickly as if I used the Start Screen. There's just something wrong with simply left clicking the taskbar icon. At this point, it's a puzzle to solve, not so much a necessity.

That's weird. Have you tried to unpin it and pin it again? That's all I can think of right now.
Have you installed all the Microsoft Updates after clean install?
There are bunch of updates (above 500 MB) available from Microsoft which improve performance and stability.
I have all the updates applied and don't see any difference in launching File Explorer in my machine.
It's super quick. I see it as soon as I click.
I refuse to believe this. If you have disabled all window animations and you are indeed trying to run the same File Explorer from both locations then there should be no difference at all. Try one thing for me though. Hit up CMD and typeexplorer
and tell us how long that takes to start up.

1.38 seconds.... disgraceful
How would you even have noticed the difference between 0.76 seconds and 1.38 seconds?
Perhaps the indexing service?
