  2. shadows not working on desktop (windows and mouse pointer)

    Hello,

    Thank you for your interest in Windows 10.

    I would appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • When you say Shadows are you referring to drop shadows?
    • Were you able to get this shadows just after upgrade to Windows 10? If yes, were there any significant software or hardware changes made after that?

    Drop shadow is a visual effect consisting of drawing that looks like the shadow of an object, giving the impression that the object is raised above the objects behind it.

    Method 1:

    If you have not tried the following steps you may check if it helps.

    • • Open Control Panel and click System and security.

      • Click on system.

      • Click on Advanced system settings.

      • Go to Advanced Tab.

      • Select performance.

      • Click settings.

      • Check “Show shadows under windows” and click OK.

    Method 2:

    If the above method does not help, I would suggest you to try different background themes and check if it helps.

    I hope the above information helps. If not, please get back to us with the updated status. We will be happy to assist you further.
