    Windows 10 Enterprise

    dwm.exe high cpu usage

    I have Windows 10 Enterprise 64bit with all latest updates.
    My laptop is Dell XPS 13 9350, with CPU Intel i7-6560U, GPU Intel Iris 540.

    I have process "Desktop Window Manager", dwm.exe, tath uses 60-80% of CPU all times.
    I have updated all drivers and firmware. I try latest official graphics driver from dell and from Intel, but problem persist.

    I have reinstalled Windows many times, but problem is same.
    With no particular program opened, dwm.exe use 60-80% of cpu.

    Can you help me to understand what caused it?
