How to turn off auto-refresh in the Asset Browser?

By default, the Asset Browser refreshes its display every time it comes back in focus. This results in repeating a search operation to refetch data every time the Asset Browser window comes back in focus. This setting may be turned off using on the Zoom Client machine. Follow these steps:

  1. Open file from .zm in the current user’s folder (make sure hidden files are visible to view .zm folder) 
    Windows: [Userdir]\.zm\

    Mac: [Userdir]/.zm/

  2. Check for the property REFRESH_ON_FOCUS. If it is not present, then add it.
  3. Set REFRESH_ON_FOCUS to false.
  4. Save
  5. Restart the Zoom Client.

Now, the Asset Browser will not refresh its displayed assets whenever it comes back in focus.
