Icons blink during update RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,
    Today with the upgrade I noticed that my desktop icons vanished and came back several seconds later. A long blink at me. Happened on laptop and desktop. Not something I like seeing. Anyone else?

  • Hi, Peter.
    This is a normal part of the upgrade process. The Desktop - that is, Explorer and the taskbar, desktop icons, etc - are refreshed/restarted. I suspect that they are restarting explorer.exe as part of the update.
