Jumping login screen and desktop with wallpaper - NOT with solid color desktop


Dear support,

My screen jumps horizontally at the windows lock and login screen and at the windows desktop when a background picture is selected in the desktop theme. Sometimes there is for a short time distorted blue screen followed by a restart, usually i am able to login before that.

It is NOT doing this when a solid background color is selected as background...

it is also NOT happening with a background picture selected in the theme, while 'external' non-Windows applications are maximized... (Chrome, iTunes, Games, blender, ...)

it IS also happening with certain Windows apps Maximized (settings, Snip & Sketch)...

updated windows and intel drivers to the last version.. not helping. any ideas please? thanks

below screens from intel command center

attached a photo of the problem


Seems to be an issue with the windows desktop manager?

Any suggestions are very welcome, I like to use a desktop picture again 🙂


in games all is fine, with MacOS all is also fine (it's a Macbook Pro 13 2020 i7)
