  2. Can not delete file on windows 10.

    It is a ghost file. If you refresh the desktop (usually F5) it will disappear.

    Looks like a gfx driver issue, check your settings could be to do with the quality options.

    By your screenshot it looks as if Recycle Bin may be frozen in the background.
    Right click your desktop and choose 'Refresh' and/or open Task Manager and right click on 'Windows Explorer' and choose 'Restart'.

    Check your startup programs, you got iTunes loading at startup? That ghost frame looks about the right size. Cos I get that too, but it vanishes once iTunes is loaded and it minimizes.

    You have most of your notification icons hidden, so I can't see if iTunes is running. Could be another program too, check your list of startup items. I have a thing called GEforce Experience that might cause that too, the frame always goes away once the program is loaded.

    Ah, ok, then check if you have other start-up entries. It could be anything, Skype, etc.

    Is that Skype? It looks like the peek feature, where if hover over the icon of an open program on the taskbar and hover over one of the windows, the rest will become transparent.

    It's some startup item that normally does not have a visible window, but it's trying to show one anyway. Hm. Where's Coke Robot?

    When you checked the Task Manager, do you have any suspicious processes running?

    If you can, please post a screenshot of your Task Manager's processes window.

    Ghost frame on desktop. help!

    I have the exact same problem and I'm suspecting this has to do with a 3rd party program. It might help me to know what software you're running on a regular basis with Windows.

    My list of "always running" software :

    Dropbox
    Owncloud
    DisplayFusion
    Slack
    Greenshot
    GlassWire
    Crashplan
    Antidote
    f.lux

    • Use Windows Key +R to open Run and type msconfig
    • Click on services tab
    • Tick Hide all microsoft services
    • Disable everything
    • Now go to task manager
    • Open Startup tab
    • Disable everything
    • Restart your pc and check if it is still occuring
    • If it is not occuring then enable the things you disabled one by one

    It happens randomly and sometimes not for a very long time. So unfortunately this method will not be helpful to identify the culprit.
