    Drop shadow for desktop icon text font keeps coming back


    I have done everything in the topic "Drop shadow for desktop icon text font keeps coming back" https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/drop-shadow-for-desktop-icon-text-font-keeps/484f0cb2-f87e-41e1-a37f-a01735e25e6c including setting every drop shadow setting in the registry that I could find to 0, but every time I turn on my pc the drop shadows are back. This thread above was from 2016. You have had 5 years to fix this problem, Microsoft. Why haven't you???

    Drop shadow for desktop icon text font keeps coming back

    I have unticked the drop shadow options in settings and the relevant registry item is set to 0.

    When I reboot I get the desktop icon fonts WITHOUT drop shadow, but after a short while the drop shadows are back again.

    How can I permanently disable the drop shadows for the desktop icon font?

    TIA

    Gert

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query In Microsoft Community.

    We would be glad to help you with the issue you are facing today. I understand the difficulty with the problem.

    Method: 1

    The drop shadows on applications in the Windows 10 really big and suspiciously similar to the ones in OS X, and if they aren’t your speed, you can easily remove them. We actually think they look good, but since somebody out there won’t like them, here is
    how to disable them.

    I would suggest you to follow the below steps to Disable drop shadows.

    • Alternatively you can use the Start Menu and search for “advanced system settings” and click on that item.
    • Go to the advanced tab and click the Settings
      button under Performance.
    • Find and uncheck “Show shadows under windows” and click
      Apply or OK
      .
    • The drop shadows will immediately be removed.
    • As soon as you do, all drop shadow effects will be disabled, giving you a truly flat user interface.

    Hope this helps in resolving the issue. If the issue persists, do get back to us. We will be happy to assist you.

    Thank you.

    Desktop Icon Font Drop Shadows

    Win 10 Tech Demo.
    I would like to have plain black text on my desktop icons.
    I have un-ticked the appropriate box to remove the subject drop shadows, but it did not remove them.
    I have checked the appropriate registry setting which is set to "0".

    When I boot into Win 10, the icon font at first appears black but then the desktop "re-draws" and the drop shadows appear.

    I have "Classic Shell" installed to give me the standard Windows 7 type Start Menu - could this be relevant?

    Any help appreciated.
