  1. Grey text box in windows 10


    This seems to be an old problem but since two days it appears to me: Every time I do anything with text in Microsoft office I get a large rectangular box pop up, it is EXTREMELY ANNOYING. What is the purpose of this box and how can I avoid it?

    I use microsoft office 2019 and windows 10 1809, with the latest updates.

    Help appreciated.

    :)

  2. blocks of text are black, blue and grey colored boxes

    Running a new HP Notebook with Windows 10, in two separate applications (Quickbooks 2016 and Outlook 2016) blocks of text appear as black, blue and grey boxes obscuring some of the text. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

  3. 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.
