    How do I remove this white border?


    After installing the Windows 10 anniversary update, I have noticed that there is now a selection box or white border around some of the ShellExperienceHost applications (the time/date, wi-fi and volume.), is there anyway to get rid of it?

    I have attached some screenshots which should highlight the border that I'm referring to.

    It looks to be part of the update. Can't confirm that until others start reporting issues.

    Where/when did you get your update from?

    Have you rebooted since updating? Please try that.

    @Plankton, I received the update via Windows Update on 31st July, as part of a Windows Insider update.
    @RWOne, Yep, I've rebooted a few times since the update.

    As part of the insider group.....then who knows what you get (extra's) versus the actual anniversary update. There may be some stuff in there that's not in the actual update. Again, we'll have to wait to see what others start reporting once they get there update.

    From what I've been reading....MS is rolling out the update. I've not gotten mine yet.

    Go to Settings > Ease of Access > Keyboard > Enable shortcut underlines and set to Off.

    This annoys me, because I like shortcut underlines, but I can't stand the ugly white rectangles. Ah well...hopefully it gets fixed in another update!

    Thank you, @amagasakii, changing the setting fixes it.

    I quite enjoy the shortcut underlines too, so hopefully it does get fixed.
