  • Hi,

    Can you give me the version on Windows you are seeing this issue?  Win + S and then enter 'winver’.  I am not able to repro this in 15063.608.

    Can you take a screenshot of the issue to make sure we are on the same page?

    Appreciate the help,


  • Hi! I have the same version of OS (v.1703, build 15063.608). I’ve attached two screenshot.

  • I can repro on 15063.608 and 16362.1000 . I’ve attached the screenshot and repro file.
