    File Explorer Border Glitch


    Hi


    When in dark mode, opening two File Explorer windows side by side (Windows key + < and Windows key + >) results in a glitch in the window border (please see attached screenshot). This only happens in dark mode. It actually looks like the windows aren't fully expanding because the desktop wallpaper is showing though parts of the window border.

    My system (ver 1903) is up to date, as is my video drivers. Anyone have an idea of how to resolve this?


    Thanks in advance.

    :)

  2. File Explorer Visual Glitch

    Hello,

    Let us isolate your concern by answering the questions below:

    • Have you made any changes to the computer software prior to this?
    • Have you tried to select a different file outside the File Explorer window to check if the issue persists?
    In the meantime, we suggest that you perform a clean boot and check if the issue persists. If performing a clean
    boot
    on your device resolves your concern, it means that a third party software is causing the issue. We suggest that you uninstall or disable them. The steps on how to perform a clean
    boot
    are provided on this link.

    We are looking forward to your response.

    Weird borders in File Explorer


    Ever since upgrading to 10 from 7, the file explorer has had these weird borders on the top. I've been looking around for a solution for this the entire day finding nothing at all.

    The borders are only at the top of the explorer. I don't have this issue on my laptop which is running a clean install of Win10.

    Disabling automatic black and white borders applied to photo thumbnails and native photo apps

    Hi Jacob,

    One of the possible reasons why you see borders on thumbnail previews is because of its
    image size. To better assist you with this issue, we need the answers to following questions:

    • Do all of your pictures have the same image size?
    • Does the border also apply to videos in File Explorer?

    In the meantime, you can try to change the icon size to see if the borders on images will disappear. To do this, simply follow the steps below:

    • Right-click on your desktop and click on View.
    • Select Small icons.
    • Check File Explorer to see if the thumbnails still have borders.

    We are looking forward to your response.
