    Task View turn desktop icon shadows back on. Is there a fix?


    After months of success... no headaches, the icon shadow is back thanks to Task View.

    Simple fix is don't use Task View.

    Is there a fix for this? I've done the below (shadow is even set to zero and TV still turns on shadow and leaves it that way.)

    Thank you.

    Desktop icon labels have drop shadows

    This is an ongoing bug which Microsoft appears to be willfully ignoring. It is definitely consistently Task View which causes the problem. Whenever I use Task View the desktop icon labels get ugly drop shadows. The only way to remove them
    is to log off and log on again. This issue has been reported ever since Windows 10 was first released! It has totally put me off using Task View. I would rather do without that than put up with these ugly shadows.

    I would like to be able to switch off task view so it isn't activated accidentally by eg. snapping windows to the edge of the screen. Anybody with a suggestion of how to do this?

    Otherwise, WHY DOESN'T MICROSOFT FIX THIS BUG??!! How hard can it be?

    Desktop icon label drop shadows always on after snap windows


    Hi, Win 10 pro - can confirm I see that after using Snap. Normal function is restored if you restart explorer via the task manager.

    Suggest you report it via the Feedback Hub app e.g.

    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/drop-s...or-icon-labels
    - gives a relevant registry key; maybe it can be 'fixed' or worked around using that.

    I found this tutorial for 8 downwards but there isn't the equivalent here:

  4. Task View turn desktop icon shadows back on. Is there a fix?

    Windows 10-Task View - "New Desktop" icon missing

    Right-click Taskbar and enable "Show Task View button". This shows the
    Task View
    icon in the taskbar.

    As for "New Desktop" icon missing in the Task View screen, this happens if you're in Tablet mode. Task View Window "New Desktop"
    Button Missing in Windows 10
    .

    To turn off Tablet mode, click the Action Center icon in the Notification area and turn off the
    Tablet mode toggle switch.
