    Random partial rendering with Microsoft Photo Gallery




      Photo display with Microsoft Photo Gallery is randomly corrupted : when switching photo, part of the previous one can stay on screen, mostly on upper section. It looks like the next photo is not finished rendering before it is sent to display.


      The problem appeared with beta, based on the versions I was able to find:

      Rolling back to 4300 solves the problem.


      Specs :

      Intel i5-6600K (Intel HD Graphics 530)

      ASUS Z170-A

      DVI display

      Windows 10 Pro 64


      The problem is present with regular operating frequencies (CPU stock and RAM@2133MHz).

      Changing the amount of RAM dedicated to video unit changes nothing (tried 32M to 512M).


      It has been previously pointed out by posts in this forum, but with different hardware:

      A screenshot to illustrate the issue is a huge plus. A video of the failure is even better! Attach to the post or provide the YouTube link.

      1. Run Microsoft Photo Gallery (it seems the pb. may only occur maximized, but I did not check this)
      2. Double-click a photo inside a directory containing multiple ones to see only one photo at a time
      3. Switch from one to another until the problem occurs
