Hopefully the title gives enough information.
We use jump lists in Windows 10 to access recent and pinned files a lot - basically all of the time as it’s just so efficient to do so - but since upgrading to Rhino 7 it’s takes several minutes to launch files this way, so we can’t practically use this functionality.
Launching files directly from file folder seems to be fine.
Does this happen on one system or on several? Can you provide us instructions on how we can repeat what you are experiencing?
Thanks for quite reply.
It appears to be happening on at least one other system that I know of for sure, but believe there are a couple of others. We are all working remotely at the moment, so we are not necessarily using our workstations, or have them accessible to check.
Effectively, if I right click the R7 toolbar, a list of recent files populates in the jump list. Whether I left click on the file I want (selecting it normally), or right-click on the file and select open with Rhino 7, I will have no response from Rhino for several minutes.
Sorry, I am unable to give you any more information, as we don’t know! All other programs, including R5 and R6 also work fine.
As a side note – another weird issue I am experiencing, is that when I have Rhino 7 open, the Windows task bar indicates (by the light blue line) that the file open is a Rhino 6, when this is not the case! Underlined in green below.
With a quick test here, I am not seeing any significant delay opening Rhino files in this manner.
Are these files on a network or a remote drive?
Also, can you run Rhino’s
SystemInfo command and post the results?
The files are on a shared server which we connect to via Ethernet.
I have just done a test with a file on my desktop, and the delay still occurs.

Hi James -
I’m not sure how this plays into all of this but Remote Desktop is on the list of not-supported systems.
Sorry for slow reply, I have been on leave.
Not sure if Remote Desktop is a problem as we have no issues Rhino 5 or 6, which also list RD as not-supported.
Hi James -
I’m afraid that doesn’t really matter. There a lots of differences in the Rhino 7 version and “not supported” only means that it might or might not work - not that it definitely doesn’t work.
Is there any way you can test the same thing without a remote desktop?
Thanks for the reply.
Whilst we are all currently working remotely with many using Remote Desktop (although some have their workstations set up at home), we’ve had the same issue in the office not connecting remotely. Unless is your proposal to remove the RD installation?
