    Strange Desktop Behavior

    Running Win10 with Open-ShellShortcuts can be placed on the desktop. But when you hover over a desktop icon a rectangular area about 1" highand half the desktop width changes to a blue lighter than the desktop blue.This seems to be strange behavior.Has anyone else experienced this?
    Did you resolve this behavior ?

    Sleep Problems - Strange wake up behaviors

    Hey, thanks for the suggestion! I went into my BIOS and neither "MSI Fast Boot" or "Fast Boot" were enabled. I took a few pictures of the BIOS config and of the power-related options, and attached them below.

    Desktop has a strange look and behavior!


    There has been a lot of changes on my desktop view. I have no idea how and why the following changes took place of my Windows unexpectedly. It has happened suddenly last week while I was working in my laptop, before the changes that took affect on my desktop
    view - everything looked fine since I upgraded Windows 10 last year. The major changes are:

    • Desktop: Desktop icons including all shortcuts are not visible anymore though 'Show desktop icons' is marked as checked. My desktop is occupied by
      Virtual Desktop (in full screen with live tiles), context menu cannot view by pressing the keyboard button or right clicking on desktop.

    • Virtual desktop: My virtual desktop has gone in full screen and cannot resize from the
      Start, before changes it was not full.

    • All apps open in full screen. 'Restore down' button does not work, for some apps - 'Minimize button' does not work. For many apps 'Close button' can only be visible while hover over the pointer and then the bar slide down with close (X)
      button visible.

    • Taskbar: Taskbar auto hide does not work properly. Taskbar looks odd. It is not only because there are too many pinned items in taskbar. The problem is the 'Back arrow' key is staying at taskbar which is suppose to be in bottom of 'All
      apps' list. And the search icon also in the taskbar, which should not be there because I removed it from the options. The major problem is I cannot look for taskbar
      'Properties'. Because it is gone and replaced by an unknown menu when I right click the taskbar.
    I have taken 'Cumulative updates' for my Windows yesterday. It does not help fix the problems yet. I am sharing some screenshots of all screen views of the issues including last Windows update lists in the folder from OneDrive for better understanding.

    Here is the link:

    I seek your expert advice on this issue, please. Any help on this will be thankfully appreciated.

    Very best regards,

    Strange Desktop Behavior

    Registry strange behavior in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\...

    I tried to clear all contents of
    then set security permission to logger user name () to be clear from:

    • create key
    • set value
    and let it inherently apply to all keys under it

    But it responds with icons flickering / blinking very often
    so I undo the security setting.. but while keeping on registry browsing under this key I came across:

    1. The jpg filetype key and userchoice key were created
    2. On userchoice key the logging user () ACL was created, and
    3. It's set to DENY on SET VALUE !
