Re: Ghost Windows When Copying and Pasting or cutting and pasting in Windows Explorer In Windows 10

Ron Canazzi

Hi Brian,

The window never goes away.  If the file is small or if it is large, the Windows stays there until you alt + tab away and back.  Sighted people do not see this on the screen at all.

           I don't know if that status can be turned off or not, as I like getting it when an extensive transfer is in progress.
