    Weard selection issue in Windows apps only


    I have this issue in windows 10 apps :

    A black box appear around an option, like if you click on tab, the difference is that if i click again on tab, it stay to this option

    In the explorer, in configuration panel (windows 7 settings) in chrome or any software, it works normaly, even in office.

    But when i'm in the start menu, in settings (windows 10 settings), mail, calendar, photo etc.. it happened every time

    I can unplug mouse and use tab : issue still there, same if i unplug mouse.

    So it seems to be a software issue, but i don't know how to fix it

    Thanks for your help
