I am using an app on my desktop that allows personalizing of bookmarks, sort of like tiles, that synchronize continuously so that the settings can be restored at any time. I forgot the name of the app. In any case, when I click on it lately, from the shortcut on my desktop, it is black for a long time before the bookmarks show up, unless I click on it again and open a new tab. Any idea how to fix this?

it worked! Thanks again!! Do I have to do this periodically?

You're welcome. Great. You only need to do that when there is issue with it or when Chrome browser is slow, not working well. Thank you.

I have a Dell All-in-One computer with Windows 10, about a year old. I have been having problems intermittently with the graphics on the monitor to the point where I can't use the computer, since the fields to input text or ability to see anything is very distorted. Lines and bands appear on the screen, and even before Windows comes up, and only the Dell logo is on the screen, the logo is distorted. This leads Dell (I have a contract with them) to believe it is hardware related since the problem arises even before Windows is up and running. However, I notice that the problem occurs immediately after Microsoft updates and is resolved by starting and restarting my computer about 20 times (literally) until I am able to input text in the screen which will enable me to remote-connect with Dell. Dell will then update drivers which resolves the problem. Still, they think it is hardware and want to replace the screen and other hardware to prevent this from happening. This last happened over a week ago, and the system has been fine every day since then. I would like to avoid having hardware replaced even though it is covered under their warranty unless it is necessary. I am convinced the problem has to do with Windows updates, and perhaps an incompatibility with the hardware since it is too coincidental that it occurs right after an update and is resolved without changing of hardware. What do you think?

Yes, I have an answer. Please submit in a new question. Thank you.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
