Yes we see this. But as you know in 2018 I reported this slow saving of stacks under Windows10, using LC timing of just the save handler rather than the visual perception of the screen update, and it has been confirmed as a bug.  bug 21305 <https://quality.livecode.com/show_bug.cgi?id=21305> The time to save is extreme for large stacks. It took some time for QualityControl to confirm, because apparently  it doesn’t seem happen on every Windows 10 installation - just every one  that I or my users have tried. It has not been fixed since 2018.
