Ive been using 2.8.10 for a long time as 2.8.14 had weird interface glitches on my PC.

I use GIMP almost every week (wallpapers, screenshots & TAFE subject documentation).

To get GIMP to work properly on my system I have to remove most of win 7 visual effects. Not sure which ones cause the problem. I just set it for best performance and add a few back.

I've never noticed any issues as I always use "Custom" settings for Visual Effects.

One of these day I'll get around to finding which setting is the problem with me but at least I have a very snappy GUI.

Yea I don't use a whole lot of them personally
Haven't tried the new versions in a while either
But I would guess it's the bottom setting :/

GIMP User Settings

Something you could try:
  • Create a backup of your GIMP user settings (C:\Users\<username>\.gimp-2.8)
  • Delete the current settings and let GIMP create a new set of GIMP user settings
I had an issue with the "Export as jpg" dialog window not showing the estimated file size (after I created a new Windows installation last year).
Creating a new set of GIMP user settings fixed the issue.

I have no idea what caused it, as I was able to transfer my old settings to the new GIMP user settings folder, without causing the issue to reappear.

I have to admit that it is several versions since I tried it with everything selected.

Yep might be a good time to take a look see at the new version since I don't use it much anyway
Thanks for the heads up
