Quoting DrJBHL,
Start menu>administrative tools>services>desktop windows manager> restart.

 

And that's IF they have their start menu set up to show it.

 

Or open run, type in services.msc, then restart DWM.

What I typed was correct, RedneckDude. Stick to sheep (per Yrag).

2of3: I think you nailed it.

If you have any other customizing software like msstyles on your computer, uninstall it as Windowblinds won't work correctly when it's on your computer, and run  sfc /scannow as an Administrator to fix any altered system files you might have due to msstyles.

Quoting RedneckDude,

You type services in the search box.

The OP hasn't been back. Figure out why?

Please see reply #6.  

 

 

Quite often the OP won't return, for a plethora of reasons....

 

Anyway, I was only trying to help. Since you didn't say "type into search box", I thought your answer was a tad confusing.

 

It isn't important who is correct, only that the OP gets helped. Not confused.    Done here....
