We are aware and are working on an issue where bigwig and bigbed files fail to load in IGB 10.0.0. The issue is caused by the occurrence of special characters, such as spaces, in the file's name or a folder name that the file is within. While we work on a fix, the current workaround is to remove spaces from the file name or folder name.
