Windows 7: Possible Bug in windows 7!

See if any of the other config panels do it as well...

(I hate not having my W7 box sitting here during the day Grrr.)

I never noticed this until it was mentioned here - maybe because I run with the taskbar hidden by default

Personally,,, I see this as a non-issue. Hardly noticeable unless you actually look at it for that very brief moment.
It is not breaking or preventing anything from working,,,, so a non-issue.

I would also second fseal's post and was thinking along those lines while reading this thread.

I'm thinking that pehaps this "flash" is related to the same progress-overlay that you get on explorer icons when copying files. It could be that in this instance, the progress display on the icon is so brief, it appears as a flash on the icon?

But do you think Microsoft will fix this problem? Only a hundred or so people will probably notice it.
The question is-is it a problem? Is it an easter egg (such as the device manager one) or is it a real bug?

Windows 7 x64

I noticed now it becouse of this thread. I don't think that this is big problem because icon is fixed after animation and I think that Microsoft never fix this.

I have Windows Explorer button unpinned from task bar so thanks to this forum. Otherwise I probably never see it.
