    Minor bug description

    My environment variable temp folder for my user account is set to another hard drive, being at G:\Temp and that folder also serves as the system's temp folder.

    The issue is that when I highlight the files and folders to delete them, whether there are 1 or 100 it doesn't matter at all - then I right click to bring up the delete option - the menu disappears so quickly that it is a race for me to be able to get to the delete option.

    System-wide, the right click option menu works perfectly and without this behavior. I seriously doubt that any third party software is responsible at all because I remember this happening immediately when installing 8. And, as stated, only this temp folder is affected.

    Just thought I'd make a note in case the issue can be fixed. I can and do use delete on my keyboard instead usually anyway, but the times I don't, it would be cool not to have to race 100 m.p.h. to be able to click on the delete option of the right click menu.

    Thanks for reading!

    Here is a video of the behavior:

    Even in the times that it appears I did click on delete, what really happened is that the menu disappeared milliseconds before I was able to do so.

    At the end of the video, I pressed delete on the keyboard to make the items delete.

    Something I have noticed on your video, is that the mouse pointer moves south, possibly before the popup menu appears. Maybe that shifts focus away from the menu, closing it.

    I have no idea why.

    I've noticed some things similar to this annoying behaviour elsewhere - like pasting text or a link into an edit window on a browser, and the browser page shifts downwards, moving the focus, so I have to scroll up the page and re-establish my insertion point.
