    Desktop background randomly comes up black


    I have up to date version of Windows 10 Pro 1909 installed on Lenovo T520 8GB RAM.

    When installed, I set the Desktop background as a solid blue colour. Now, every now and then, the background is solid black after booting. Refreshing does not correct this. If I go the settings - personalize, the black box is checked off. If I recheck the blue box, then we are back where it it should be. THis may be OK for a few days, and then I will get the black screen again.

    Anyone have any idea why this would happen? Never did with Win7.

    :)

    Desktop background randomly goes completely black


    I think there were already signs of this bound to happen when I noticed a while back that my desktop was refreshing randomly, but I didn't really make anything of it. I've done numerous virus scans with everything updated via Malwarebytes Premium and my own Windows Defender Program and it always tells me I'm clean. Now, my background on my desktop just goes black randomly and a way to fix it is to just refresh the background and my wallpaper comes back...Also, sometimes when I click and hold down my left mouse button and drag to create a box on my desktop, it'll create blackness instead of being transparent like it usually is and the black stays. Can anyone please help me? This is starting to bug me real bad. I have everything updated. Windows 10, my graphic card's drivers, everything. Really not sure what in the hell is causing this..

    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.

    Not sure how to edit my post (can't find an edit button anywhere), but here's a photo of my screen black and me dragging my mouse cursor while holding the left click down. Apparently, I start removing the black by doing this and it reveals my wallpaper, little by little. It's so weird and I don't know what is causing this.
