Very weird behavior under Windows 10

#1 Post by Tomlin » 07.02.2020, 15:25

Hello all,
I have been using the FreeCommander for many years. (Right now I am using XE 2020 Build 810a 32-bit public portable.)
I divided the window in two horizontal parts – each one has a lot of locked tabs, because I work in many different directories.
One week ago my PC was upgraded / updated from Windows 7 (professional 64 bit) to Windows 10 (professional 64 bit).
Since then my FC shows a very weird behavior from time to time:
No matter which folder tab is open – suddenly my task-bar (which is set on auto-hide) flips up and down several times.
And at the same time the FC also shows some flipping action until it goes to the top directory "This PC" in both - the upper and in the lower half of my FC window.
When I go back to the folder where I was the appearance is very different from the one before that "flipping action":
The column sizes are completely different, the column "Created" is missing, and the column "Modified" cannot be sorted anymore.
I have to close FreeCommander and re-open it and then everything is fine... until it flips again, which can happen after two minutes or three hours.
Up to now I couldn't find out by what it is triggered...
Does anybody have an idea about that issue?
I am curiously waiting for your replies...
Thank you very much in advance.
Tomlin.

Bad news for you, good news for me: I have also problems with FC [and other pieces of software] after being forced to switch to Windows 10 from W7; but not the one that you describe

Check your computer with antivirus program, check the installed programs, startup programs, perhaps a program for keyboard shortcuts, try FC with default settings.

Do you have the same/similar problem with other programs?

Also using FC, latest available public version on WIn10, but no issues like you have described.

Locked Tabs are basically a variation of favorites. Since your problem appears unique, perhaps all those locked tabs are causing it. So, try replacing those locked tabs with traditional favorites. Once your locked tabs are gone, restart FC and see if the problem continues.
