    Make Win+D only affect one screen


    I'm often using a secondary monitor (for music etc. while gaming) with my laptop and I'll often use Win+D to show the desktop. However, it will minimize all windows on both screens, even though doing so on the second one is unnecessary (no notification area/desktop icons).
    Is there some hidden setting or (more likely) third-party utility that makes Win+D only affect the currently selected screen (depending on the highlighted window/mouse cursor)? I wasn't able to find anything online, but maybe some of you might help me!

    :)

    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    win 10 update leaves vertical pink line on screen

    today i applied latest win 10 update and now i have a vertical pink line on screen, it remains on every screen. i have tried these fixes

    Step 1: I suggest you to run SFC scan,
    System File Checkeris a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:

      Command Prompt (Admin).
    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.
    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.
    Step 2: Also, I suggest you to update the display drivers and check.

    Steps to Update the Display Adapter driver.

    • Press Windows key + Xkey when you are at desktop.
    • Select Device Manager.
    • Expand Display Adapter.
    • Right on the Display Adapter and click on
      Update driver software
