Clock skin not refreshing properly

disarray » May 23rd, 2019, 4:37 am

Hi all, first time posting what I assume is a simple problem for the experts to fix.

As you can see in the screenshot, when the clock or Y: drive usage % updates it doesn't remove the previous text and overlaps. Manually refreshing fixes this but that's not great for a clock... Thanks in advance for any and all help. :)

I'm using the Cabal skin on Win 10 64bit: https://www.deviantart.com/givesnofuck/art/Cabal-317882370
with a slight modification to have it open a specific folder on click:

Most probably you have to update your graphic card driver. Probably you're using an Intel HD Graphic card and there are some issues if the driver isn't the latest one. Details: https://forum.rainmeter.net/viewtopic.php?f=123&t=29394&p=161939&hilit=update+driver#p161939
Alternatively you could try to disable the Use hardware acceleration setting in Rainmeter: https://docs.rainmeter.net/manual/user-interface/manage/#General.

Thanks, I am indeed using a laptop with Intel graphics. Good to know this is called a "drawing" problem - I'll give the hardware acceleration setting a click and report back after the weekend :)
