Cooler Master Steel Series

  4 months ago
  Cooler Master (i7 2600K (3.4GHz) 16GB RAM)
  Mint 19.x
  Works fine with some minor problems
What works:

Practically everything
Takes minutes for updates to download and install compared to HOURS for the same on my W10 Laptop which is newer than my tower.

Just recently around May 2021 apps don't fully shut down when closed. The Icon remains in the taskbar (panel). If I attempt to [X] close the app in the panel I get a suggestion to Force Quit the app which if I Confirm has no effect.

What doesn't work:

My PC has multiple User profiles.
While logout login works fine the Switch User function leaves the PC with a black screen and flashing white underline cursor.

What was done to make it work:

Reboot required to login.
This doesn't actually fix the problem but does let me continue working on it.
