How to troubleshoot screen flickering
The first thing you need to do is to figure out what's actually causing the screen to flicker.
You can quickly find this out by opening the Task Manager by right-clicking the Taskbar and selecting Task Manager, or you can use the Ctrl + Shift + Esc keyboard shortcut.
The next step is to pay attention to the screen and see if the Task Manager flickers.
If everything on the screen flickers, but Task Manager doesn't, then you're dealing with an incompatible application. In the case that Task Manager flickers along with everything else on the screen, then the problem is most likely to be the graphics drivers.
Once you've figured out what is generally causing the issue you went through the troubleshooting steps, you can follow the steps below to tackle the problem.
How to uninstall incompatible applications
While there is a large number of applications that could cause issues, usually you can narrow it down to your third-party antivirus and applications designed for previous versions of Windows.
If you have installed Norton Antivirus, iCloud, and IDT Audio, these are applications known in the past to cause problems.
To uninstall incompatible applications, do the following:
Click on System.
Click on Apps & features.
Select the app causing the problem and click Uninstall.
Click Uninstall again to confirm.
If you're uninstalling an app from the Store, there are not further actions to take. However, if you're uninstalling a traditional desktop application, you'll have to go through the uninstall process.
Alternatively, you can use Control Panel to uninstall a problematic desktop application.
Open Control Panel.
Click on Uninstall a program.
Select the application you want to remove.
Click Uninstall and go through the uninstall process.
Once you uninstall the applications that may be causing the problem, reboot your computer, and see if that fixes the problem.
If you have successfully addressed the issue, but you need the application, make sure to check the software company's support website for more information, an updated version, or alternative options that will work on Windows 10.
