Not sure what you mean by box,
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / July 6, 2005 8:05 AM PDT

but try this.

Open up Display Properties, (right click the desktop, select Properties), then on the Appearance tab, click the ''Effects'' button.

See if changing the option ''Show window contents while dragging'' changes the effect you are seeing.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
