Showing an image as background color!

Marc Tomas 0 Reputation points

I' ve a very strange behavior in all windows apps:

  • When I choose the following colour #282a36 as background it starts to show an Image as Mosaic background. It fails in any app:
    • Notepad++: I view here firstly because I use a standard Dracula Theme ( And I try to change the theme and it worked. So I browse the web of the theme in chrome to serach for an update. User's image
    • When I browse url (, it appears the same (in chrome and edge):

User's image

  • Finally I've tried in windows, selecting the same background colour and the same mosaic appears:

User's image

I've tried in other computers and I can't reproduce it, evidently I've restarted windows to fix it but no succcess! What can I do? Where is the problem?

    Hello there,

    As you are noticing this only in one device you might compare the display settings and try to revert back to the same.

    You might also need to check your performance and power setting which plays a key role here.

    Go to Settings:: Ease of Access:: High Contrast and turn off the High Contrast theme and see if that helps.

    If Windows Update recently made updates to your device, roll back your display driver. Otherwise, try updating or uninstalling your display driver.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
