Grey Colour on left side on Windows Settings

2019-07-15, 18:49 PM


I see Grey Color sometimes when I open Windows 10 Settings.


I am unable to understand it’s cause.

It’s because of Windows issues or display driver issue.

Hi  ,


Welcome to Community Forums!


We apologize for the late response.

Are you still having issues with the grey color on Windows Settings?

When did you start to notice the issue?

Is the grey color visible even when you're on the desktop screen or when an app is open?

If it's just showing on Windows Settings, then it's a Windows Issue.

You might need to check for Windows Update in Settings.

Windows 10 periodically checks for updates. When an update is available, it is automatically downloaded and installed. This keeps the system up-to-date with the latest features.

Go to Settings > Update & security > Windows Update, and select Check for updates.

If there are new updates, download and install.


Give us an update on how it goes.
