    How to remove drop shadows under desktop text?


    .
    After last night's Win update, I now have version 1803.

    All my desktop icons now have drop shadows under the text. How can I remove these shadows?

    I tried Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings, but I couldn't see the setting.

    Thanks.

    Thanks @Edwin :)

    I think my eyesight needs adjustment to allow me to look further down dialog boxes.
