    Welcome to the forum
    I modified your tile as that prefix is reserved for tutorials.

    What brightness are you using? The SP4s are prone to some flickering at 25% or lower, to be fixed in a patch.

    Does screen flickering only happen in Edge? There is a known problem with the video drivers which causes screen flickering when displaying some video content.

    I have had this issue for several months and it has been getting progressively worse (it started out of the blue). It started with the bottom half inch of the screen "jittering". In the beginning, it would stop after 5-10 minutes of turning the display on, which I attribute to it warming up or something. Over time, it no longer went away after warming up. Right now it does it all of the time and the size of the area is larger..it is now the bottom inch and a half of the screen. I have pretty much decided recently that this has got to be a display hardware issue and I am going to have to send the device back for replacement. I really don't want to do that, but I see no other option at this point.

    Yours sounds like a hardware issue....I would contact Microsoft and request an RMA.
