859: No operation, but FC constantly refreshing/blinking interface when in 'Desktop' or 'This PC'

#1 Post by cadudesun » 10.12.2021, 02:37

Hi.
I'd appreciate your help. I'm using FC Portable build 859 on Windows 11 (recent fresh installation of Windows with very few apps installed).

As shown in the following screen-recordings, although there is no operation at all, when in 'Desktop' or 'This PC' the FC interface is repeatedly blinking:

In one of the videos, even the mouse become 'busy' because of the refreshing/blinking.
Because of this issue, it is difficult to even rename a file, because the focus is lost when refreshing/blinking is triggered.

In "Settings>View>File/folder list" the refreshing is set only for "Auto refresh for general changes" (first option).
When I turn it OFF, the blinking has stopped. And turning it ON the blinking has started over.

What is strange is that I tested the very same portable FC - with "Auto refresh" ON - in another computer with Windows 10, and the refreshing/blinking interface didn't appear.
Has anyone else experience such issue?
Could Windows 11 be causing the issue?
Is there any known issue that could lead FC interface to refresh/blink constantly?

Thank you!

Marek

I use Desktop or "This PC" view really seldom but I see the problem.
I think, I have found solution for the problem.
Changed for the release 861.

Great news. Thank you Marek!

Just taking the opportunity to mention another open thread in which refreshing seems to be part of the issue equation:
Thumbnails always being rebuilt every time same folder is accessed - FreeCommander Forum
Do you think there could be any relation between both threads?
