    Icons permanently selected in the taskbar on Windows 10


    I have an annoying problem that is rather old on my PC and I decided to search for a fix it just now.


    Sometimes while I use my PC, the icons in the taskbar begin to keep permanently selected.

    If I run the mouse pointer through the taskbar and then return it to the program window, the last icon that the mouse has "hovered over" is selected, bright, including the name of the program. It's like when the mouse cursor is over the program icon, but it's not.

    Does anyone know what it's about and how to solve it? I hope my question is clear enough.


    Thanks in advance!


    Here is an example:
