Ive got 2 workstations, one laptop, all with current CorelDraw and Windows 10. All up to date with drivers and updates. One system has an AMD RX460 4gb vid card, the others are green powered.  I let the radeon suite update, and that caused a lot of trouble, namely with simple things like copy, paste, opening files, and printing (a print window takes forever to pop up) 17.7.2

 

This only happens under the Radeon graphics drivers. There are a few posts around that suggest downgrading to 17.7.2, some of them suggest uninstalling the fall creators update as well. Not sure if that would help, but its also time in my day I dont have to play with. It would be nice to at least see AMD make note of it in known bugs. Seems to not be just the newest Corel software either, seen similar posts about this happening with older suites.

 

 

 

At the moment im going to try and roll the driver back, see if that helps. Any other suggestions would be nice. It does seem that this machine's explorer functions are slower too, opening folders, waiting for folders to update, clicking "new" takes a considerable delay, all of this is new t the machine. Its a clean win install, AV and such is up to date, scanned, etc.
