    Windows 10

    Text appears in boxes in all my apps but not on desktop icons.


    My cat trod on my keyboard when she was going to her sheepskin mat next to the monitor (she often sleeps there) since then the text in the browser and wordprocessing programs and notepad is in boxes and I cannot manage to cure the problem. Any ideas?

    Well, you could keep your cat off the keyboard............................

    Have you tried a system restore to a point before this happened?
