  1. Fix the black and grey boxes that cover the screen when you scroll

    Whenever I scroll too fast in Excel on my PC black and grey boxes appear everywhere and cover what I am working on. This is incredibly frustrating because there is no way to get rid of the boxes.

    This only happens on my external display and it only happens in Excel.

    Please fix this issue.

    Hey folks,

    I am not seeing new recent activity in this space. It is possible you are seeing this less due to our on-going performance investments including in speeding up our grid rendering. Details on latest speedups are at https://aka.ms/excel-perf-improvements.

    That said, if you still are experiencing this please provide specifics on your configuration and monitors… better still please send feedback about the problem from within Excel (go to Help > Feedback), which will include some diagnostics to aid our investigation.

    thanx,
    Prash
    [MSFT]
