    Windows 10

    I click on settings icon, the screen shows, and then disappears

    I click on settings icon, the screen shows, and then disappears. This happens with all task bar items like the network icon, the date/time icon and the notification icon. It also happens on sever start menu programs. I've seen this question asked here before but no solutions posted. ANY help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi, basics- does this happen in
    a. Safe Mode?
    b. After a clean boot?

    History- when did this start happening? - Can you think what (change) may have triggered this?

    Do you have any system restore points or disk images dated before this started to happen you can use?
