    Still no way to disable "Show Translucent Selection Rectangle"?

    Greetings all.

    Hello risug, :)

    You could still use an option in the tutorial below to turn on or off "Show Translucent Selection Rectangle", but it doesn't affect it in File Explorer.

    Greetings Brink,
    those options didn't work for me in Windows 7 or 8, and now years later it's the same case with 10.

    The bug has become a tradition at this point. It's kind of a small wonder that no one has cooked up a hack in all this time.

    Just to note, it only works on the desktop.
