Before I report this as a bug, when look at the About window the Platform field doesn’t report my system properly. Here is my OS information from my system about window (screenshot because windows is arbitrary about when you can select text to put in the clipboard…):
Here is the copied version information from KiCad:

Before I submit this as a bug report on launchpad, I want to check that this really is an error. Should that Platform field be the host machine, or is it the machine that the binaries were compiled on?
I had mentioned this on another thread for my work machine here Arrows of the window scrollbars seem inactive (v5) but wasn’t able to check on my home computer until I got home…
