Residual bar left after few search and mouse hover over

Post by Vicntevey » Tue Mar 16, 2021 12:37 pm

Hi All,

I am an old Everything user but new to this board, I gonna say Everything is one of the greatest inventions for windows !! Hell Yeah!

But I have a problem for quite a while, that is "Residual bar" left after a few search and mouse hover over (see attached screen shot) :o
close Everything process can make them gone but it will come back.
I wonder if anyone shares the same question and wants this to be addressed/fixed?

system: Windows 7 Ultimate
Video Card: NV 750Ti
RaM ddr4 2400 /32gB

Thank you for the bug report Vicntevey,

I've seen this issue before a long time ago from another user email report...

I don't have a solution yet.
It sounds like a display driver issue leaving window shadows behind.
Looks like shadows from the tooltips?

Everything doesn't do anything fancy with the window shadows, it's just a stock window.

Could you please try :
Win+Ctrl+Shift+B to restart your graphics drivers.

Does disabling shadows under windows help (Windows 10 link, still applies to Windows 7):

If you have dual graphics cards, please try swapping the default graphics card:

To clear the shadows, please try:
Right-click the desktop, select "Personalize", Save your current theme, change the Windows theme to "High Contrast White", and then change the theme back to your favorite.
