  • If I had to guess I would say problems with your video driver. See if you can get a newer version. You will likely not be able to reproduce this on another machine.

  • Hi Tom

    Thanks for helping. You are probably right. But this kind of "dirt" only occurs on screen when I am running an Access App with tabs.

    My PC specs are good:

  • Hi Peter,

    Does it happen with "any" Access app with tabs? If you create a "fresh" one, does it have the same problem?

  • Hi ForssPeterNova,

    I try to test with Access 2016 32 bit, Windows 10.

    I am not able to reproduce the issue on my side.

    it looks like graphics related issue.

  • Hi DB

    I just created a new database and a form with tabs. No "dirt" on the tabs on the new one. On the other hand there is no dirt on the old database either. It never is when i start the old one. The dirt starts to appear after a while and disappears when I hover over the tabs.

  • Hi Deepak

    I will follow the steps to find a resolution. Already check version of display driver and I have the newest.

    Will try to turn hardware acceleration off too. In the meantime please see animated Gif below. Look on tab "Resources"

  • Hi ForssPeterNova,

    is this issue only available in this database or it is also available in newly created database?

    I know that you had mentioned , when you start any database this effect is not there and it will come after some time.

    so the same issue can you reproduce in the new database too?

    if not, you can export all the objects from current database to new database.

    Regards

    Deepak

  • Hi Deepak

    I tried this:

    Created a new database and imported the "old" one. Blurr still there.

    I created a new database and exported the form from the old one. The blurr i still there. Even in design mode.

    I pressed Ctrl Alt to mark all objects on the form to see if the dirt/blurr came from hidden object. Could not find something hidden.

  • I changed Visible to No for all tabs, but two, to the right.

    That led the dirt to move left :-(

  • The only thing left to test is your mouse. Maybe it's sending out a signal other than "hover". Try a new mouse.

  • Hi Bill

    I normally use a reglular handheld mouse, connected by usb bluetooh.

    Removed it, including the usb.

    Now using my touchpad only.

    The dirt is still there.

    Will try with a cabled mouse later.

  • Peter - Okay, I'm out of ideas. Does this happen if you boot up in Safe mode?

  • Thought of something else...my Outlook lags on my virtual desktop which is a network based VDI. lines of text repeat as I scroll down if there is heavy network traffic.

    Is your database local or on a LAN?
