Windows 10: Weird transparent edges to some context menus Solved

    Weird transparent edges to some context menus


    So, Windows 10. So far so good. There's just one small problem.

    For starters, the background colour to these tooltips doesn't change when I change the colour in the Personalisation menu. But that's more of a secondary issue.

    The primary problem is that weird transparent edge around the tooltip. When I first installed, I had something similar around the start menu. A restart fixed that problem. Now I experience these transparent edges around those tooltips and also at the edge of the notifications sidebar.

    I have no idea what it might be. I never used a transparency workaround when I was running Windows 8.1, and that's about the only thing I can think of.

    Any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The jump list colour is standard behaviour.

    For graphical problems like those borders, my first port of call is always the video card drivers.

    Windows 8 had wider window borders, so I'm wondering whether it's due to Microsoft not changing the borders properly? I noticed that Internet Explorer edges keep showing gaps on the left and right hand side as well (when IE windows are full screen, but not maximised) and the gaps are about the size borders used to be.

    That was one of the first things that I did. My laptop has both Intel and AMD graphics drivers, and both are as up-to-date as they're getting.

    Are you running a 'bordered' theme?

    Evidently I was! I hadn't even thought to change the theme I switched it to the default Windows theme in Theme Settings and that seemed to solve the problem for me. Thanks!
