My System Specs

Default Screen/Desktop Dimming

Hi Everyone, lately whenever I open or close something that is pinned to the taskbar my monitor dimms for a while. Everything i have researched about this leads back to Windows 10 adaptive brightness but I have had this turned off ever since installing windows 10. Any ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is it the same effect as what you get when you attempt to open an application that needs authority to open?

This is on my desktop and Windows 10 is up to date. This does remind me of the way the screen went with UAC. After digging around the net a bit more I have read about people having this same issue with the Windows update that came out on November 04 but no fix.
