    Update caused Shadow on desktop icon text


    Hello,
    I just had a update on Win10 Pro 64b and it has made my desktop icon text almost unreadable as it has put a black shadow on the text. Any ideas please?
    Many thanks in advance imk

    Hi there...

    No screenshot? Ok, my guess is the text shadow's been enabled, check the tutorial below:
