    Windows 8.1 programs visual problems (buttons, images)


    Hey,

    I have some problems with, apparently, windows apps and the visual in some of them. For example, in Windows Store, when I'm hovering the mouse over the back-button, it doesn't seem to highlight it all the way, just partially.

    And in Skype, the buttons are just partially visible, as is my user image.

    What seems to be the problem here? I've tried to find a solution to this, but haven't got anything even close so far, so thankful for any help.

    Here is another picture when I'm using the Mail app in Windows. The problem seems to concern the apps for Windows 8.1, not anything else.

    You are not the only one.
    I just started a topic about Win8.1 interfering with other programs displays.

    See if this helps any:

    You may also from the elevated command prompt (Admin) type:
    sfc /scannow

    Naw, this is not a program (I refuse to call them Apps) issue, can't be across so may programs.

    The troubleshooter sometimes fixes some of these problems. The sfc command fixes a lot of system problems also.
