  1. Grey overlay on videos glitch fix


    For anyone experiencing sudden grey filter on video playback after:

    • about a second of playback
    • system overlays such hovering on open taskbar apps, start menu etc.

    that affects some apps only like chrome, photos, movies & TV (PotPlayer seems to be immune from this issue),

    You can try disabling "Transparency effects" in Settings > Personalization > Color. It's been driving me crazy for quite some time and I just accidentally found this fix just now. I'm posting this just in case a future googler is looking for a fix because I can't find anything on the internet

    Search bar graphic glitch half grey

    Video drivers are ok, it's not a video glitch but a software issue in the search component of some kind, apparently...

    From a comparison with fresh install in VBox (left) I've found some differences in the registry keys for SearchUI (C:\Windows\SystemApps\Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy\SearchApp.exe):

    (differences at the bottom are just for the Jumplist history so we can ignore them...)

    P.S.
    I just added also the value "BingSearchEnabled"=dword:00000000, let's see if this is enough to stop this random glitch

    - - - Updated - - -

    Changed 2 things:

    • added the value "BingSearchEnabled"=dword:00000000 to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Search
    • changed NVidia settings for SearchUI profile to use application settings for anisotropic filter ignoring driver's customization for SearchApp.exe:

    Radeon Overlay not displaying all options

    Ok, I got a question. The options to hide the overlay are confusing. What are the steps to turn on the overlay in-game? Not interested in logging much at the moment. Is Alt-R part of turning it on/off?
