    This screen is not one I recognize.  What workspace are you using?

    Guess I am confused as the image in the screenshot is not full screen and you have arrows below the image.

     

    When I hit spacebar the image is full screen. no borders and no arrows.  Also no artifacts on screen.

     

    Am using CS5 and Win7.

    If this is all the bigger your full screen image is the problem probably lies with the video card or driver.  See if there are any updates.  If not in advanced preferences check "use sofware rendering".

    Where has the icon come from? Is it on the desktop?

     

    The only problem I know of, in full-screen mode, is where the sort order relies on metadata (instead of file system data), and the foreground screen drops behind another during sorting. I set mine to filename sort to avoid this.

     

    Otherwise, it could just be a video card driver problem.

    It isn't in Preferences. It is in the Path toolbar, top right of the screen. If it's missing, try Window > Path bar.

    I looked up RAR and it is a file generated by WinRAR archiver.  So to me it looks like there is some conflict with the RAR file and how Bridge handles them.

     

    I don't know what RAR files are used for, but can you move them to a different folder and see it that solves the problem?

    In you directory hirearchy were do you have the notepad and RAR files?  

     

    I could try to reproduce your setup with a notepad and see what happens.  Will you get the overlay if you open a jpeg photo in full screen?

    To make this simpler than reproducing you exact setup,  here is what I did.

     

    Add new folder to drive C.     C:\Bridge Test

     

    Copy jpeg and a wordpad document into this folder.  In Bridge open folder and click on image and then spacebar.  Image full screen, but no artifact in view.

     

    Try this same thing on your machine and see it you get different results.

    In those problem folders you might try purging the cache with Tools/purge cache for xxx folder.  This will purge cache in both the central cache and in folders, if you have this option selected.

     

    Glad we got some satisfaction with all this effort.
