    Text cursor stops blinking after a few seconds

    In most of the applications the text cursor stops blinking after a few seconds. The time, after it stops depends on the application.

    In Start Menu, when you type "Change cursor blink rate", the "Keyboard properties" settings dialogue appears. In this dialogue I have the "Cursor blink rate" set to default. I did not change it since Windows installation. With these settings I got the following
    results.

    [table][tr][td]Notepad[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Windows Explorer[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Total Commander[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Microsoft Office 2016[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 30-32 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Microsoft Edge, inside Google search box[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 10-11 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Microsoft Edge, inside URL bar[/td][td]Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.[/td][/tr][tr][td]Firefox (in URL bar, also inside web pages)[/td][td]The cursor did not stop after 50 blinks. Seems to work OK.[/td][/tr][/table]

    I am using Windows 10 Enterprise, Version: 1709, OS Build: 16299.431.

    Please fix this bug. The text cursor should blink contantly.

    Is there any way to keep the cursor blinking? Latest Windows update causes cursor to stop blinking after a few seconds.
