    Why Cortana text box and clicking Get Help on every page of Settings result in Black/Blank...


    Surprisingly, I'm a victim of Black/Blank screen whenever I need help from "Get Help"! I typed in Get Help in Cortana field I saw Get Help as 1st result, after clicking it, I saw tiny blue spinning wheel with mouse pointer.

    Expecting that I'll be taken to MS Virtual Agent Home Page. After just few seconds mouse pointer remains on monitor screen but tiny blue spinning wheel disappears. Once in a while tiny blue spinning wheel appears again and then disappears but mouse pointer remains on monitor screen.


    Even if I click "Get Help" at top right on every page of Settings feature, RESULT IS SAME AS ABOVE!


    Evidently "Get Help" puts my request in AGGRAVATING SITUATION.


    Pls. Radio button for this unusual situation is not an option on MS support article named "Troubleshooting problems for Black or Blank screen".
