    Non-Existed Windows Phone Icon appeared in the This PC.

    Hi again, thanks for all the suggestion, But I haven't been able to remove the Windows Phone Icon with your suggestion.

    However, I browse a bit and discovered a very old forum on how to remove their Nokia Phone icon for Windows XP. Involving deleting a registry key.

    I tried it, and yes! this 5+ years old forum did provide the fix! It removes the Windows Phone icon completely!

    I also create a backup copies of registry key I deleted in case something went wrong.

    Here's the link to that forum in case anyone encountered the same problem as me. Give it a try!

    Thanks for all the help!

  3. Second monitor appears pixelated sometimes

    Before we get started, here might be some setup information that may be worth noting. My primary monitor is a 1080p, 1920 x 1080 (native) using an HDMI to DVI. My secondary monitor is a SONY TV 1360 x 768 (native) using an HDMI. Both are connected to my graphics card and not the motherboard. I have always had this setup but I have not always had this issue.

    Preforming the following actions may cause my second monitor to appear pixelated.
    • Getting a web browser out of maximized mode by click dragging the window or using the restore button
    • Using full screen on the secondary monitor
    • Dragging a window into the second monitor, sometimes

    In order to temporarily solve this issue I must apply a change to any display using the Nvidia Control Panel. Using the Windows display settings to apply a change does not always fix the issue. Also note that after the second monitor goes pixelated, my computer does not detect a change in any display's resolution settings.

    So far I have tried the following fixes to no avail
    • Keeping display drivers up to date
    • Using a DDU to wipe display drivers clean and start anew
    • Using the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter

    I have tried to use capture software to screenshot the pixelation but it can not see it. I have to use a camera to show what it looks like instead.
    Before:

    After:

    Capture software is not capable of detecting the pixelation so I have recreated what it looks like on screen. Use this as reverence if the pictures look bad.

    phone link icon appeared on my pixel screen

    Pixel 4 phone is not being fully recognized by Win10

    Try manually telling the phone you have decided on file transfer - it might be prompting you on its screen when it connects [mine does]. It should then appear in File explorer.
    [My Android 12 does not automatically set itself up for file transfer. I have to set it to File transfer/Android Auto every time I connect it by USB because it defaults to No file transfer.]

    That's a good thing.
    Device Manager, Other devices is a euphemism for 'no drivers installed'.
