Hey @Paul Botle, I hope you're well today!

Does this occur at all times when the desktop app is running, or only when the app is syncing?

Please let me know what you see reported in the sync status of the app when you notice this behaviour.

The version of the app you have installed would be useful to know too.

Looking forward to your reply!
