does it happen in safe mode?

  1. go to settings/update & security/recovery
  2. under advanced startup, click restart now button
  3. this restarts PC in a blue menu
  4. choose troubleshoot
  5. choose advanced
  6. choose startup options
  7. click the restart button
  8. choose a safe mode (it doesn't matter which) by using number associated with it.
  9. Pc will restart and load safe mode

some times its fixed by updating display drivers

try changing resolution of screen and set it back to normal again?

maybe

After users experimented with different settings, it was determined that the bug is caused by disabling the News and Interests widget on the taskbar.
Once disabled and a new system tray icon is shown, it triggers the glitch. Once you enable the News and Interests widget again on the taskbar, the icons begin to display correctly.

Yeah, I changed the resolution and it stopped, but setting it back started the glitch again. I didn’t have time to update the drivers when I was there, but I’ll try to do that next time.

I forgot to mention that it was doing this so I did a fresh install of W10 and it is still doing it.
