Menu Commands Stuck On Desktop
« on: August 27, 2013, 08:58:29 am »
So, I was curious if this has ever happened to you where a menu command gets stuck on your desktop, leaving a 'ghost-like' image from the last prompt you clicked on. This has been annoying me for a while now. It was random and came out of nowhere. Now it seems to be happening with more regularity. Is there something that can fix this?

I found a temporary work around to the problem when I get the Ghost image. All you have to do is go to Control Panel > Appearance and Themes > Display > Settings and then switch the depth to 16-bit, then back to 32-bit. This will erase the Ghost image. Before I came across this solution, I would have to reboot the computer every time to "get rid" of it. But I would like a permanent solution.

I did try the option below, but I'm still getting the Ghost Image.

Right Click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced Tab > Performance Settings > Un-check 'Fade Out Menu Items After Clicking and then it Apply

Menu command stuck on screen

The above link has an example of the Ghost Image in the first Image at top of the page if you guys don't know what I'm talking about.

I have never seen that.

That page doesn't have a solution?

Not a permanent one.

Well, since disabling the 'Fade' Option, I haven't had any Ghost Images getting stuck on the Desktop. I hope this is in fact a permanent solution.
