    Hi Paul, you replied to a thread about the problem of having a black background screen (see below)

    Hi @sam_cole321,

    Thank you for posting the results of the check page. From what I can see it does not look like Chrome is using your graphics processor. The GL renderer says "Google SwiftShader", this is a software renderer. If you have a graphics card I would expect to see it's name. For example something like AMD / NVidia or Intel. The issue you are seeing could be a bug with Google SwiftShader. Furthermore the rendering performance is low as well.

    You may want to ensure Chrome is able to correctly use your graphics card.

    I am trying to use OnShape with students in my school and the school is slowly becoming only thin clients.  I get a black background on the older thin clients and the newer ones (sorry, cannot be specific at this time) in Chrome and when using MS Edge.  Is there anything I can ask our network managers to check that would give you enough details to work out what is going wrong?

    Many thanks
