        2004 was auto-installed on my Windows 10 Professional 64-bit system July 08.  I have had two occurrences where text in some windows disappears –  September 07 and September 13.  I was playing Solitaire, and I saw that the timings at the bottom of the window were missing.  This morning, when I was shutting down applications in order to reboot, a window appeared from the right-hand margin; that window had no text.  Has anyone else seen this?  I have been running Win 10 in production since June 30, so I cannot say that this is due to 2004 and not my previous 1909.  I installed

        KB4566782 2020-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x64-based Systems

        KB4566782 2020-08 Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 2004 for x64-based Systems

        on September 01, so maybe one of these two is the culprit.

        Not very recently… but this has happened to me occasionally since at least 1992. So not by any means specific to Windows 10…

        I had never seen the problem with my Windows 7 system, which I installed in May 2011.  I have Windows 8.1 installed on a laptop that I “babysit” and maybe use twice a month.  I have not seen this on 8.1, but my usage might not be enough for me to have experienced the problem.
