  1. Black Window on my Desktop


    Hey everyone! So a few days ago I noticed a small thing on my desktop. I thought it would go away in time, but it never did. Until today I tried messing around with it and it turns out I can expand it. It is all black on the inside and I can see no way to close it. As you can see in the pictures it has a normal windows border. I run an antivirus search and restarted my computer a few times to no avail. I also made sure my drivers are up to date. Lastly I Had no programs running at the time. Any help? Thanks in advance!Black Window on my Desktop [​IMG]Black Window on my Desktop [​IMG]

    Desktop background gone black after a few minutes of use on laptop.

    Hello,

    Desktop background and taskbar going black could be due to software conflicts.

    We would like to know some information to better assist you with your concern:

    • What troubleshooting steps have you done so far?
    • Did you get any error messages or error codes?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you try to check if the "Show Windows Background" option is turned on. Follow the steps below:

    • Open Settings in the Start menu.
    • Go to Ease of Access, then on the left side, click
      Other options.
    • Turn on Show Windows Background and check if it works.

    We will wait for your reply.
