    Hi,

    Before we assist you let us know few details,


          • Did you made any changes to your computer prior to the issue?

          • Have you created any system restore point on your computer?

    As initial troubleshooting steps I suggest you to install the latest windows 10 updates, please follow the steps to install all the windows updates.

    If you want to check for the update now, select the Start button, then select
    Settings > Update & security >
    Windows Update > Check for updates.

    We suggest you to try changing the visual effect setting. To Change your Visual Effects Settings in Advanced System Settings refer the below steps,


    • Press Windows logo key+ X

    • Click on Control panel

    • Select System and Security

    • Click on System

    • And select System protection

    • Select Advanced tab and click on
      Settings


    • Now select the option Let Windows choose what’s best for my computer
      option.

    And check if this helps to resolve the issue.

    Hope this information helps with best visual effect on your device.

    Thank you.

  4. Changing PATH does not take effect

    Add a path to $PATH?

    Yeah, I think you're right. I think the purpose of the echo command was to check if ~/bin was in the $PATH file. My problem is that I can't decipher the output and I don't know how to add ~/bin to the $PATH file.

    Just for clarification, the snippet of instructions I gave is just a few steps in the installation process. Nothing is actually supposed to be installed with those steps.

    Thanks for the reply.
