QuestionHow is the Windows 10 Device Manager "Display Adapters" icon supposed to look? Pin

MemberRedDk16-May-20 12:31 
From day one (two years it's seems now), the Computer Management console Device Manager treeview, under my named computer has displayed in the fourth-from-the-top position, "Display adapters" ... by the looks of it, a wide screen monitor ... BUT there's a slight interrupted edge beneath the LCD screen light-blue color which seems to be yellow in color.

The fact of the matter is that it looks like one of those YIELD signs (black/yellow triangle with exclamation mark) is lining up behind the monitor artwork slightly to the right but showing up front because the triangle is not completely obscured by that artwork.

So there's a yellow base-of-a-triangle peeking out beneath the "display". Before I ask why anyone would want to arrange these two objects in close proximity like this to indicate "Display Adapters" (a road sign and a monitor), I know that when a device has problems loading it's driver, the standard icon for YIELD, the yellow caution road sign is the symbol of choice.

I have devices that have icons in the tree that are wholly obstructed by that YIELD overlay and I know why they're that way. But a device that has no problems displays the artwork of an iconic wide display but with a yellow road sign behind it?
