    Black Background while playing games


    Hi, so ever since I got my new pc, I have been playing a few games here and there. These games were downloaded from the microsoft store and the majority have a black background. I know this should not be like this since I am playing a game I have before on my old pc and it did not have a black background. To be more specific, I am not experiencing a black screen nor am I crashing but instead I am simply playing the game normally just without a background. I do not know what can be causing this and it is really quite annoying. If this can be fixed, please let me know.

    :)
