Does anybody know why PCars keeps changing desktop theme/wallpaper? I have this as startup for PCars "...\Project CARS\pCARS64.exe" -x64 -dx11mt -novr -pthreads 4 -fpscap 91. I don't anything checked in properties, except for Run as Admin (ie. Disable desktop composition/disable themes are also unticked).

No one encounters this? I think it's more of PCars starting Windows default aero theme everytime I start the game, so my desktop changes. I saw a similar post 'PCars removes wallpaper' but no solution was provided, or what causes this when starting PCars.

Yes, same happens here, PCars activates an Aero theme every time it starts, don't like it either.

edit: Using the lowest memory theme, nothing but background colour.

Experience this but on Windows 10, thought it was a bug with the OS until I read this and other reports. Mine seems to revert back to an unsaved theme. Since I have saved the theme, haven't had a repro of the issue but haven't tested in depth. Dual monitors, nvidia 970.
