    :HELP: Random invisible border around system tray popups


    First time on these forums, so please cut me some slack if I make any mistakes/break any rules.

    I upgraded to Windows 10 and have a random border a couple of pixels wide around all of the system tray icons. I cannot for the life of me work out why. My Win 10 computer at work does not have this border, so I am pretty sure it is not normal. I took a screenshot and edited it poorly in paint, link:

    Anyone got an idea why it is doing this?

    It looks like you are using Aero Lite theme.
    Try switching to a default Windows theme, and make any changes you want in the settings app(Wallpaper, Mouse, etc.
    Also make sure you have all 3 of these switches on:
