    White box in top left corner of screen.


    I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen.

    It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'.

    Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on.

    It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.

    It appears after the laptop has been to sleep and on occasions, just seems to appear randomly.

    I believe it may be a problem with Display Link drivers i use for a universal adapter for multiple monitors. I have asked around on display links forums but i am yet to find a solution (updated all drivers, uninstalled, re-installed, etc.), so i thought I would ask you guys if you have any ideas.

    Other places i have found similar issues:
    White box in desktop corner on Dynadock with Windo... - Toshiba Forums
    White Box on Desktop with Dynadock - DisplayLink Forum

    I have attached a screenshot of the issue.

    any help would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

Moving pointer to left corner not working.
Hi all, When you move your pointer to a left corner you should get either the start page or your open tasks/apps. But it's only working occasionally on my desktop. Is this a known problem, just my computer or just me being stupid? :confused:

Desktop top left corner - can't put an icon there anymore?
Today, for the first time, when I started my computer, the icons on the desktop (I use the old-style desktop) had shifted such that there was nothing in the top left corner. And I cannot drag anything up there anymore - there's this blank spot where I always used to keep my "My Documents" user...
