    Blank Screen when right clicking in IE/Chrome/etc...


    So as the title says....

    When right clicking a link in whatever web browser I am using I get a blank screen.( For example, if I want to open the link in a new tab) I can see the outline of the screen and after 10-15 seconds it may show up. I don't know what has caused this issue, or how to fix it.

    This also happens periodically when right clicking on the main desktop on files/folders, and does happen when trying to expand the hidden icons in the right hand side of my taskbar (where the volume control and time is...)

    There was windows update (KB4016871 I believe)

    I did roll back the update and it seemed to correct the issue, but it has subsequently updated again, as I didn't disable that afterwards...

    I'd rather find a solution that will work with the current update. As computer savvy as I am, googling for answers, I can't seem to pinpoint the answer to this one.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    :)

  2. Edge browser Back button changed?

    Why is there no longer a drop-down list of previous pages on right-click as in IE, Chrome, etc

  3. IE not working

    Every so often IE just stops working. If I have five or six windows open, I can open another window, type a web address, press enter and the whole IE screen just goes blank. If I go to the the Task Bar and right click, it will show the IE Windows. Selecting
    any of them just takes me to any other open app randomly (Excel, email, etc)

    Blank Screen when right clicking in IE/Chrome/etc...

    dzilla,

    Try to download and installing the latest video driver as this problem is caused by a GeForce display driver. You can use the GeForce Experience (GeForce Experience: Your Gateway To Great PC Gaming | GeForce) application to find the latest update easily. I would also assume that you are using a laptop? You did not list your make or model number so maybe it is a Dell laptop? Please let me know if this resolves your issue *Smile

    Well updated the driver, and now Microsoft Edge web browser is now working, but for some reason Chrome still shows a blank screen, and when trying to show my hidden icons in the tray bar its also blank...Very frustrating....

    Yes it is a laptop, I thought the little drop down under my username where it says My Computer shows that information on this forum?
