In most of the applications the text cursor stops blinking after a few seconds. The time, after it stops depends on the application.
In Start Menu, when you type "Change cursor blink rate", the "Keyboard properties" settings dialogue appears. In this dialogue I have the "Cursor blink rate" set to default. I did not change it since Windows installation. With these settings I got the following results.
|Notepad||Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.|
|Windows Explorer||Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.|
|Total Commander||Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.|
|Microsoft Office 2016||Cursor stops blinking after 30-32 blinks.|
|Microsoft Edge, inside Google search box||Cursor stops blinking after 10-11 blinks.|
|Microsoft Edge, inside URL bar||Cursor stops blinking after 5-6 blinks.|
|Firefox (in URL bar, also inside web pages)||The cursor did not stop after 50 blinks. Seems to work OK.|
I am using Windows 10 Enterprise, Version: 1709, OS Build: 16299.431.
Please fix this bug. The text cursor should blink contantly.
