Windows 10: Windows 10 Desktop frequent refresh
Windows 10 Desktop frequent refresh
I have recently upgraded from Windows 7 Home to Windows 10. Upgrade went quite smoothly with one very majoy annoyance. THE WINDOWS DESKTOP and TASK BAR is refreshing very frequently. This sometimes makes it impossible to carry out a simple task.
If anybody can please help - a friend for life.
Hello and welcome to the TenForums
It might help if you were to fill out your system specs for us to know what hardware you are running.
For now I would suspect that the graphics card or on board graphics is having problems due to a driver issue. Normally you would get a message if the graphics card is restarting. However, make sure the drivers are updated or you are using the manufacturer's recommended driver.
Thanks for your speedy reply. I little difficulty getting the System Spec. But this is what I have. Does this help?

As far as I can check, all drivers are up to date, the driver is the one originally fitted with no problems on W7 and W XP.
I was confused by your system specs - it looked familiar - you have reproduced my own system specs! I need to know yours.

Hello. Since I installed Windows 10 when it was released, every now and then my desktop doesn't refresh to include new items I've added. If I want them to show up, I need to press F5. Now, I've found something about changing a registry key...
Running a one-month old clean Win 10 install.
I find that my desktop icons frequently lose their shortcut symbol (the little white square with curved blue arrow), or otherwise change. I haven't tried to figure out when or why this...
