Windows 10 taskbar icon stays highlighted

This isn"t really a problem for me. I"m simply posting this to melted some extra light on a difficulty I have seen reported sporadically the last couple of years.

You watching: Windows 10 taskbar icon stays highlighted

 

People occasionally post that they have actually highlighting approximately their Windows 10 taskbar symbols. They will certainly regularly short article screenshots too.

 

Due to the fact that this highlighting is normal Windows 10 habits, I had actually a difficult time expertise why this was an worry.

 

I finally gained some new insight, by accident.

 

It is normal for these symbols to be highlighted WHEN a program is open up, or hovered over.

 

Ever given that I mounted KB4557957, an icon on the taskbar will certainly randomly come to be highlighted as soon as the program is neither open, nor has it been hovered over.

 

It is not significant enough of an problem for me to really look into it further best currently, but at least currently I understand why someone would certainly say it is abnormal or a trouble.

So sorry. It is Windows 10 Home x64 2004.I assumed around it a small even more. Ever since I updated my Bluetooth driver, my mouse cursor disappears after a duration of intask (Bluetooth mouse). I think it has actually latched on to the taskbar as a relaxing location, and also this is what has actually caused the unmeant behavior.

Restore the previous driver after uninstalling the last one.  Rebegin the computer and also check out what happens.

That definitely did the trick. No even more mysterious grey highlights.

 

I actually updated the Bluetooth driver originally bereason my computer might not identify even more than 1 Bluetooth gadget after the 2004 Upday, per the Microsoft Knvery own Issues list. Updating the driver refixed that problem.

 

But currently that I unset up and rolled back to the previous driver, the unsupposed grey highlights disshowed up AND the device have the right to still acknowledge more than 1 Bluetooth gadget. So, possibly the version of the Bluetooth driver itself was never before an issue. Just reloading it had actually an result.
