  1. Floating grey box on computer monitor


    Today I've noticed on one of my monitors a small grey x box with a small distortion near the top middle of the screen. It doesn't appear to be a burn as I can move a window over it and it'll cover it, nor does it appear to be something to do with my wallpaper as changing it doesn't make it go away.


    I've tried closing all of the applications I typically have running, not sure of what to do from here. When I reboot my computer, it's immediately there.


    Here's a picture of it within the red circle. If I move my settings window over it, it covers it.

  2. How do i rid of the grey box in the top left of my desktop?

    Hi,

    It's odd for a random grey box to show up on your desktop after the last update occurred on your computer. It could also be a software installed on your computer that's causing for it to appear. However, let us not assume anything yet until we isolated your
    concern by providing the answers to these questions:

    • Did you start noticing the grey box after or prior the latest update?
    • What were the updates that have been installed on your computer?
    • Have you installed any software prior to the issue?
    • What are the troubleshooting steps you've tried to resolve your concern?
    • Can you provide us a screenshot of the grey box?

    In the meantime, we suggest that you create a new user profile and see if the issue persists on it. Here is the
    article on how to create a one.

    We're looking forward to your response.
