  1. Picture tab opening randomly

    Hello there!

    Today (2/17/2019) a weird "Picture" tab opens up randomly. I cant press exit or anything it just closes again after some time (usually 10-30 seconds).

    Its very annoying if im watching Youtube or just searching the internet.

    Multiple tabs opening at once


    Thank you for being part of Microsoft Community.

    • Which browser do you use where the tabs are opening?
    • Does the tab open randomly or it happens when you click on some link?

    Please reply to questions in order to assist you in a better way.

    Quick Access not searching Pictures folder

    Summary, that last suggestion didn't work.

    • I moved the pictures to another folder temporarily.

    • Since there were no troubleshooting steps for this scenario, just for the heck of it, I ran through the restore steps. Copied some pictures into the Pictures folder, ran a Quick Access search and initial problem remains: Searching all of QA doesn't find any files in Pictures folder, running search on just the Pictures folder does. I want to run a global search and find matching files in any/all of the Documents, Music, Videos, and Pictures folders.
    That article dates from 2015 and I'm guessing is out of date. I hope it didn't create potential future problems in my registry.

    Bottom line: I'm still looking for a fix.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
