This only happens with certain programs.  


For example, I have Microsoft Outlook 2013 open and Chrome open on top of that full screen.  When I minimize Chrome, the picture from Chrome will still be partially visible on the screen even though Outlook is the top window.  To get it to fix itself I just have to click on outlook, and the image from Chrome disappears.

FYI, In Control Panel > Performance Information and Tools > Adjust Visual Effects everything is unchecked.

Hey FrogerMan!


I have 2 computers with windows 7 on them and I took a look at Control Panel > Performance.....>Adjust Visual Effects and they all have something checked if not all of them checked. I also noticed some radio buttons at the top of that tab:

  • Let Windows choose what's best for my computer
  • Adjust for best appearance
  • Adjust for best Performance
  • Custom

Which radio button is clicked on your system? I would check, "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer" and then see how everything looks. Microsoft says that these are "performance" issues and each one can be unchecked to increase system performance. If this works for you, you'll have to decide or choose which you prefer, visual enhancements, system performance or a balance between both.


Let me know what you find!

AMD FX-8120 Zambezi | GeForceGTX550Ti | 16GB G.Skill DDR3 1600 | ASUS M5A99X Evo | Windows 7HE SP1....or something like that!
