Topic review


I cannot reproduce the problem even with KeePass. I have sent you an email with a debug version of WinSCP to the address you have used to register on this forum.

I could let you see my screen in 1-2 hours via teamviewer if you want to check yourself.send me a mail to if you like.

Versuin 5.17.9 Build 10905 - newest Version all the time.

I have the same Issue when:

Starting via KeePass Shortcode:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\KeePass.exe" -entry-url-open -uuid:08CF216912E8934FA5CAF2088A2BC268', "C:\Program Files (x86)\KeePass Password Safe 2\"

    Manual via cmd://"{ENV_PROGRAMFILES_X86}\WinSCP\WinSCP.exe" sftp://{USERNAME}@xx.xx.xx.xx:22

BUT: I do have 1 laptop and 1 PC.
KeePass is on NAS Share, both use the same DB.
Both have the same Version of WinSCP.
I did save the config to winscp.ini on the laptop (I do not have the issue) overwritten the copy ion the PC, PC has still the issue.
I only have the issue on the PC. Not on my laptop.

Can I clean the registry somehow or reinitialize WinSCP That every config is gone?

Can you please answer all my questions? I cannot reproduce your problem even with a shortcut to a site.

I did test it and Yes, its a specific site.

How can I remove that on that specific site?
I use a shortcode, but I can start diffrent sites with a shortcode which I dont have that issue.

Thanks for your help

Re: Background Grey after restart

Thanks for your report. What version of WinSCP is that? How are you starting WinSCP? With a desktop shortcut to a specific stored site?

Background Grey after restart

When Starting SCP, the Background is Grey.
When I switch to dark mode, it got dark, back to light mode, it gets "white", which I want.
Restart programm, grey again.

I did a screen recording, please see attachment

I swiched from Registry settings to WinSCP.ini file, closed WinSCP and deleted the settingsfile. Restarted, same issue.

How can I solve that?
