When Microsoft publicly released Windows 10 a year ago, some users who installed it, immediately noticed a problem with screen flickering. Now, a year and two major updates later, it seems that Microsoft still didn’t solve this issue for everyone, as some people still report the same problem.

One user reached Reddit, just a few days after the Anniversary Update release, saying that the old problem with screen flickering is still present in Windows 10. Judging by the number of responses, it looks like he’s not alone in this, a lot more people confirmed that the issue is not resolved yet.

“The age-old bug I described in the title (which also flickers on deleting files if you enable deletion confirmations) is still present. Interacting with the Recycle Bin will trigger an Explorer redraw. Video of what this looks like. A whole year of Win10 being RTM, dozens upon dozens of Insider previews since early 2015, and Microsoft cannot fix this? The hell…”

Microsoft and its partners actually released a few fixing updates for the screen flickering problem in Windows 10, but apparently, that’s not enough to solve this problem for all users. The company, however hasn’t confirm this issue is also present in the Anniversary Update yet, but if complaints keep coming in, we should expect another patch soon.
