    Window Border Shadows Left on Desktop

    I keep seeing some windows border shadows stuck on my desktop when resuming from sleep. I attached a screenshot of it. Any idea what may be going on or how to remove them?

    Welcome to TenForums @burnside

    From your screenshot I can see on the taskbar that there is an app running. The resolution is not enough to identify its icon though, but it has the 'underline' that shows it is active. It seems likely that these windows belong to this app and have not been refreshed on resuming. What happens if you hover over or click on its icon (the one with an 'underline' bar) in the taskbar?

    Closing all my apps in the taskbar didn't help, but then I started closing some of the background apps one by one and finally saw the shadow disappear. I'll keep an eye on things, but I'm thinking this is solved. Thanks a bunch!
