Windows 10 graphical glitch - Alienware 18

Dear All,

I am experiencing a strange graphical glitch in windows 10, The start menu appears pixilated (as per attached screenshot - Visual studio icon for example has RGB pixles in the orange background) this also effects the photo viewer were RGB pixles can be seen in various photos. I suspect that this is a windows 10 issue since the glitch disappears in full screen applications such as Fallout 4 ( no artifacts or pixiles) . I have updated the drivers to the latest provided by Nvidia to no avail.

Any suggestions what could be causing this?

That doesn't look like a glitch to me. Just a normal scaling anomaly hen displayed on a lower resolution monitor or when the display resolution is artificially lowered on a fixed pixel (such as LCD screen) display. Windows has *long* (as in not new to 10) looked best if you set the graphics card resolution to match the display's native resolution. If that makes text too small, change the scaling, not the resolution.

As for the orange color, if a program has an icon with transparency, the color of your personal theme is used as the tile background and the transparency lets this show up. So this is also normal.

Must be only visible on this screen (running at native resolution) :S This started all of a sudden and Im suspecting its some Windows setting as full screen apps dont have this issue.

Correction Issue also affecting full screen all of a sudden

Make a photo of the screen and upload it, please. Maybe its rather a hardware (screen) problem than software.
