You may notice a an additional tiny delay from the moment you double click an app, and the launch of said app, or the double click of the FileBridge drive, and the opening of Windows Explorer. During this time, credentials are being verified, and the slight delay is normal. 
  5. A number of minor UI and UX improvements to make your experience even better! 
BUG FIXES:
