Breakpoint puzzle

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know why using a breakpoint on a command could change the behaviour of a macro before that command?


The initial section of the macro shown here simply opens the properties of a file selected in Win 10's File Explorer. But, running it with F9,  when it stops at the breakpoint, the properties window is nowhere to be seen. I eventually found it hidden under the Script Editor. And instead of two '<CONTROL><TAB> commands it had executed only one, so that the Security tab was selected.

If I removed the breakpoint and instead inserted a Pause directly before the Mouse Move, I got the correct result: the Properties window was on top and its Detail tab had been selected.
