I have just taken delivery of my new computer and am trying to set it up (what a nightmare…may write an article about one day!!).
Anyway, one problem I just can’t fix is how the desktop looks, or more particularly, the icons.
It’s hard to describe, but some of them, particularly ordinary folders, My computer, Recycle bin etc., have a blue, jagged, edge around them. If ever any of you have used a photo editing program and tried carefully to select a shape to cut and paste, you will have noticed a few unwanted pixels when you paste your selection. It’s like that.
I have tried everything I can think of under display settings, folder options and etc etc!
The effect is there at all screen resolutions.
Everything is pin sharp and using the monitor on my old computer is fine. I’m sure it’s a Windows setting, but I can’t think what.
It is Windows Media Centre, rather than my more familiar XP Home and Pro (but I have chosen “Windows XP style” as appearance in display properties, however, the other two styles have the same problem).
