    If you able to open the Command prompt as administrator or Windows Terminal, then type the following command:

    sfc /scannow

    Press enter and let it runs and see if it solved the problem.

    It may happen due to screen resolution. Change Screen Resolution and recheck the issue. You may also need to uninstall, reinstall and update the graphic card driver.

    Hello there,

    In the Task Manager window, switch to the “Processes” tab, look for the “Windows Explorer” service. Right-click on this service and select “Restart”.Now, switch to the “Details” tab in the Task Manager. Look for the below-listed services, right-click one each, and select “End Task” in the same order:


    As soon as you ‘End Task’ for all the aforementioned processes, simply close the Task Manager window and check the taskbar.

    I hope this information helps. If you have any questions please let me know and I will be glad to help you out.
