Windows 10: Start Menu tiles darkening

  1.    31 Jul 2015 #1

    Start Menu tiles darkening

    This happens when I click "All Apps" in the Start menu followed by scrolling/clicking. The icons also get pixelated and blurry. The issue seemed to be related to Intel HD4600 graphic as the issue did not surface when I disabled it and run solely on discrete GPU on my laptop.

    The same is happening to me!! I did not notice it at first as I had been struggling to have windows 10 detect my on board graphics as this was stopping me from installing the latest Nvidia drivers. Once I restarted everything looks fine, but when I open up the start menu and stay there a few seconds, the tiles start to darken en lowering the quality of the icon on each tile. Even the text goes all dark grey making it almost impossible to read.

    Please we need some one to shine some light on this issue and if more people are experiencing it, and if someone has found a fix, please share it.

    Have you updated the Intel graphics driver?

    Yes, I have updated the intel drivers. :)

    I have now found a temporary fix (have not restarted yet), I have disabled the intel HD4600 on board graphics, re-enabled it, and now the start menu does not darken or lose icon quality and the text also stayed white and not dark grey. Will keep updated when I restart or shut down the computer.

    Unfortunately after the restart the problem still persists.

    It's quite odd that the issue is gone after I created a temporary account, logging into it, and then going back to the main account. The temporary account may be deleted afterwards. I also did a restart of explorer.exe if that helps..
