    No recent document for applications on start menu


    These list of recent files are called Jump Lists. Windows 10 still has them, but now you get them by right-clicking on the application on the Start menu (or on an application pinned to the taskbar).

    If you can't see a jump list this way, check that 'Show recently opened items in Jump Lists on Start or the taskbar' is turned on in:
    Settings > Personalise > Start

    NB: Be careful with this setting. The way to clear all Jump Lists is turn this setting off then back on again.

    Desktop turning black & black squres behind icons

    When I do a selection (click and drag) the space that I selected turns my desktop background black.

    When my cursor goes over an icon, a black square appears behind it.

    Also, when I drag an icon around on the desktop, all of the background turns black.

    All of this started happening after I pressed a lot of keys at the same time by pressing the keys with my whole hand. I've looked for it on a lot of forums already and I tried every solution to similar problems but it never worked.

    I really need help! Please.

    I don't know if this can be usefull but I don't have a Windows key so Windows isn't activated on my computer.

    And here are my specs if needed:

    GPU: Gigabyte Nvidia GTX 1080ti 11go

    CPU: Ryzen 7 2700X (not overclocked)

    Ram: G.Skill Ripjaws V 16go DDR4 2666Hz

    Motherboard: MSI x470 Gaming

    Invisible Icon on desktop turns black

    There are no 'truly' invisible icons in the Windows system, you need to search the web for one.
    (I think they're created from a completely transparent bitmap image, then assigned an .ico extension, or sumpthin like that, I can't remember!)
