Problems with Fing Desktop

Despite re-installing I stillhave not got Fing to work at all correctly on my W10  2-in-1. Among the problems are the following: no response from Connectivity, Reports not displayed, clicking Notifications just generates dancing blobs.  I do get popup warnings on start up ---- although I have not been able to view them one did flash by and I think it said speed via my Ethernet is lower than expected at 100 m ---- and what is the meaning of "acknowledge new network by providing a context" (searching has not revealed an explanation).

    I have just installed the update. Fing is still virtually unusable. All the failures listed in my previous post are still present. I get warning notifications which I cannot open / read. What now?

    Hi @clayto
    Please share the screenshot of the notifications and error so that we can investigate further? If you would like, you can DM me the screenshots as well.

    A few days ago after another install Fing launched OK so I was able to get an idea of what it should be like. The following day it ceased to work and is not working now. I will send screenshots, though to me they don't seem very informative.

    I Copied 2 other screens but they would not Paste here. They are mainly blank pages with the Heading from the menus such as Notifications. No more information.

    Can you please try to uninstall the app completely and then reboot device and install and try again?

    I followed advice to completely uninstall Fing Desktop but after re-install it hardly worked at all so this is being sent from an Android Tablet. As it works well on Android I am going to give Desktop a miss for the present and hope when I try again later my (and the other) issue will have been resolved.
