Screen flashes every time i switch windows / tasks

HP Recommended
Pavilion 27es
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Whenever I switch windows / tasks, the screen always flases once, then goes back to normal. I've tried changing the hertz refresh rate, and checked to see if everythings plugged in. This is really annoying me. Is there any known fix?

See the following - issue may be an application or out-dated driver:

On the more mundane side (and after you have checked / updated your applications / drivers), try setting the Background to something bland - one screen only, no "slideshow".

Screen may flash if you are initiating (starting) a task / application for which you need administrative permission.  You can reduce the UAC settings to remove this "sreen flash" when starting these types of programs.

THIS only made the screen flash twice now.
