This error puzzled users and made them search for solutions on the Internet, but luckily, the solution was found.

The issue was not restricted to one part of Windows. Users encountered problems on Windows 10 related to the “Open with” dialogue on the taskbar and a multi-monitor setup where icons would jump between screens.
