after a windows 10 upgrade the side and bottom bars do not pop out to choose options

Asked by John Suscavage on 2016-12-26

This problem only happens on my desktop computer. It started after a windows 10 upgrade from windows 7-64bit. It is the only computer it happens on. My laptop works fine. I have completly uninstalled and reinstalled the program a few times and it happens with older versions and the newest version of Stellarium.

If you move the arrow to the left side of the screen or the bottom neither bars pop out or up to give the choice option to see. It is really strange. The side bar seems to react differently as the grey bar doesn`t show at all but the choices show in white when the arrow moves to the area of the screen on the edge where they should be but can`t be highlighted or chosen.

The bottom bar seems to pop up but the icons can`t be seen in grey. The place where the bar should be stays completly black, however if I move the arrow down below the choices I can click on them even though they are invisable. This is not happening with the bar on the side. They can`t be chosen at all.

I`m pretty sure it is a windows 10 issue because it worked perfectly fine before the upgrade. As I said earlier Stellarium works fine on my laptop after the upgrade and still great after the latest version install two days ago. Not so with the desktop however and it`s driving me crazy rendering the program pretty much useless on my desktop.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Why not read the FAQ?

Update GPU drivers, use ANGLE/DirectX9 mode, send logfile.
