Anyone know the significance of this, Vista, normally you hover cursor over a folder and it "shades" in, with a light blue colour. Move the cursor away and the folder remains "selected" in blue. Occasionally the box also has a border of tiny dots round it when you do this... why ?
I said I was bored... Select documents, move cursor over a folder, it highlights in blue, move cursor away to a blank spot and the highlighted folder remains but it turns paler blue. No problem there. What sometimes happens is that as well as doing that the highlighted blue area is framed by close spaced black dots. Desktop icons then have the dots too as do "windows boxes" such as "apply" "cancel" "OK" etc In the case of the desktop icons the last icon to have been hovered over retains the frame of dots. Reboot and there gone, sometimes for weeks... I'm sure it's something I do when moving and working with folders that causes it but what ?
Just re reading your reply... folder does stay highlighted in blue when cursor moved away, but if moved to another folder then that new folder turns blue as I would expect. If I move the cursor to a blank part of the desktop and press enter the highlighted folder is selected and displayed... it's them there dots (like a picture frame) that puzzle me.
Ah... 99% of the time there is no "dotted frame"... that's normal in Vista as far as I know. You learn a lot asking questions and finding things out yourself... and just sometimes it helps solve other problems. It's why it does it "sometimes" for no reason that puzzles me...
