    Disable Window Shadows in Windows 10 TP


    A quick tip to disable the 'atrocious' new window shadowing effect in Windows 10 Technical Preview.
    (I say atrocious but others may like it. I find it too much of an effect)

    I hear ya!
    Depends, I guess, where you open the window; on a dark desktop it's not so 'intrusive' but on a white background it's a little much, for me anyway.

    It's a decent tip. I should ask Mr. Brink to make a tut of it before this gets buried in the 'Sea of Threads'!

    I guess the current setting must not bother me much, as I can't say I've even noticed. But nice job on the tut mate!
