  1. That one focus border.


    Hello,

    I'm sorry to bother everyone about this issue that has been discussed so many times before, but I tried looking around and I wasn't able to find any proper solution.

    So there's this issue with the focus border appearing on unfocused items in explorer, for example desktop icons

    On desktop, it's much more annoying because focused icons show full names, and so you always have this one annoying icon sticking out

    Granted, it only happens if the desktop is in focus (or explorer window), but it usually doesn't happen, only in a few rare instances in Windows 7 and 10.

    The most common "fixes" I've seen are refreshing the desktop (doesn't work, because as soon as desktop is in focus, that exact same icon gets the border treatment again), clicking away from the icon (how do people not realize this isn't the usual focus selection), this.. thing, hiding desktop icons, deleting System32, not using Windows ever again, etc.

    Don't get me wrong, that border is definitely useful if you're only using your keyboard, and you have no idea what icon have you selected last time, but Windows should be smart enough to realize that clicking, with your mouse, means that you don't intend to use keyboard for navigation.

    So, what I want to know is how to hide that border, without restarting, and make sure it doesn't show up again.
    I don't want to just restart my system, because that would just delay the inevitable.. I know that annoying guy will show up again, stronger than ever.

    Thanks in advance

    :)
