W10 Screen

Recommended Posts

Yesterday I upgraded both my computers from W7 to W10 ...Pro

 

On the other computer I got the W10 screen that I expected, but on this computer, see below is what I got ... any ideas? Yes both are activated ... one pointer is that previously a lot of the wording on the screen was green as it is now ... see bottom left of screen ...type here to search....any suggestions as to the problem??

Have you tried refreshing / updating your video driver?

Check your video driver, at least that is my guess.

Maybe an updated driver will be automatically downloaded - after a while.

Or maybe you can download and install it manually.

"dark mode" is a buzzword currently.

I am not aware how this could happen involuntarily.

 

I find it unlikely that it has to do with drivers, graphic cards etc.

And there is no "send bitcoins to ..." message. Not hijacked or the like.

 

Have you simply tried to change back the "theme"/color settings to something appropriate?

I had two sudden cases of background color changed to black without an obvious reason. Just changed it back and forgot about it.

Don't know whether this article is most helpful?

How did the background look before upgrade?

Did you have a wallpaper/photo for that?

Right click on your desktop, go to View, and unclick auto arrange. Then you can put the icons wherever you want, all neat and tidy, unlike yours. Like this, so it is easy to find things.

So does clicking on the Recycle Bin icon, and then Empty Recycle Bin.

^^ he clearly doesn't have auto arrange on

 

looks to me like a high contrast theme is on

i think if you write "theme" in that search bar you should be able to change it. (or high contrast)

 

just tested mine and it ends up like this when it's on
