  1. Program or app not display on top of work area

    I am trying to use my snipping tool. But the snipping tool box is behind the browser window I want to take a snip of. What do I need to do to get it to appear on top? It has something to do a with a display setting but I can't figure out which item. It just not the snipping tool. I;ve notice that anything I want to display on top, I have to mimimize browser to see any app. I don't know how else to explain it. I know it's in a display button just don't know which.

  3. Programs Arent Visible In Top Inch of Screen?


    Thank you for posting your query on Microsoft Community.

    With the issue description, I understand that the programs are not visible on your computer. I will certainly help you in getting this fixed. I would appreciate if you could help me with more information

    • When you say “Programs aren’t visible in top inch of screen”, do you mean the programs icon on desktop or top portion of screen within the program?

    • Is this issue specific to some programs?

    • What is the make & model number of the computer?
    The issue might be occurring because of inappropriate screen resolution or corrupt Graphic/Display drivers. Please follow the below mentioned steps and check if the issue resolves

    Method 1:
    Adjust the screen resolution as recommended

    Please follow the below mentioned steps to adjust the screen resolution

                • Press Windows + X, Click Control Panel

                • View all control panel items, Click on

                • Click on Adjust Resolution in left pane

                • Click the drop-down list next to Resolution. Check for the resolution marked (recommended)

    Try method 2, if the issue persist

    Method 2: Uninstall and Reinstall the Graphic/display drivers

    Follow these steps to uninstall and reinstall the driver:

    Step 1:
    Uninstall the
    Graphic/Display drivers

    a) Press “Windows Logo”+
    X” keys on the keyboard.

    b) Click on “Device Manager” from that list.

    c) Search for the graphic/display drivers from the device list, right click on it and then select “Uninstall”. On the un-installation window, if you have an option: “Delete the driver software for this device” you may select
    that and then remove the corrupted drivers from the computer.

    d) Follow the on-screen instructions to complete it and the restart the computer if prompted.

    After the restart, you may again open the Device Manager and then click on the “Scan for hardware changes” button at the top of the Device Manager window and check if Windows 10 detects the network devices and installs an
    appropriate driver for it automatically. If that happens, then check if it resolves the issue.

    Step 2:
    Update Driver Software from the Manufacturer’s website:

    If the issue occurs due to corrupt Graphic/Display Drivers, then you may refer to the manufactures’ website and install the latest Graphic/Display drivers for the device.

    Hope this information is helpful. Please write back to us if you need any further assistance, we'll be glad to assist you.
