    There is a zipped folder name thats just on my screen, even if i open a window it shows over it. I don’t know how to get rid of it, and it’s extremely annoying. Here's a picture: https://imgur.com/a/l8aQnGD

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Ghost router

    Hi Leigh,

    Thank you for the reply.

    Please confirm if it is the ghost driver that you are seeing in the device manager after removing it. If so, I would suggest you to right click on the ghost driver and disable it. Go to Devices & Printers and check if the ghost router is showing up.

    If it is still showing, please uninstall it.

    Restart the system once to make the changes effective, and check if the ghost router still shows up.

    If the issue persists, take a screen shot and reply back.

    Refer this
    article
    on Open Snipping Tool and take a screenshot.

    Please reply back with the required information.

    Regards,

  4. Ghost file showing up on my Windows 10 screen

    ghost file on desktop

    Hello Bruce,

    Thank you for your continued patience on this issue. I would like to assist you further.

    If you are unable to remove the file using Explorer, I suggest you to try delete the file using the command prompt. Follow the below steps.

    • Press Windows key + X, select
      Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.
    • Now browse to the folder where the file is located. You can go to the root of the drive by typing in cd /, followed by
      cd foldername to navigate into directories. Once you are there, type in
      dir to get a listing of all the files.
    • To delete a fie type del “filename”

    Hope it helps this time.

    Thank you.
