MAX "Devices and Interfaces" search spinner not spinning


Circled in the image is a spinner in MAX which shows after expanding the "Devices and Interfaces" (while MAX is searching).   Mine has not spun since the first few launches after the initial installation. 


Maybe not a big deal, but wondering whether there is a way to 1) fix it (without complete reinstall of NI products or wiping my system) and 2) whether this behavior is indicative of a bigger issue.

If you open up the tree using the down arrow, keeping Devices and Interfaces highlighted and press the 'F5' key does it search?

Now Using LabVIEW 2019SP1 and TestStand 2019

Hi GovBob,


it always does searches, though,  (maybe a different issue) often requires a restart or two before returning the expected results (returns odd reference (handles?) to the equipment.
