    Start menu text color issue

    Hello all. Just got a new laptop for my first experience with Win10, although I am near expert experience with Windows since Win95. I must say I have more appreciation for this than I did for Win8. Anyways, I have been having an issue I am hoping I can find a solution to. I have tried every combination of colors and color settings possible and cannot get this fixed. I have posted a side by side pic of my start menu on first press, then the list of All Apps.

    Problem: When I open the start menu initially, all text is white and clearly visible no matter the color or settings. When I open All Apps, the text appears barely visible and in a gray scale that is barely visible no matter what color background I give it. Also I have noticed at random that when I open All Apps, the menu will fade to a darker shade very slowly, making the text nearly IMPOSSIBLE to read. Is there a setting outside of color settings I am missing? How can I change the text color of the apps list, if at all?

    Open your graphics control panel, find 3D settings, disable the "Application Optimal Mode" if available and reboot. If not, try to turn off everything inside the 3D settings (one at a time) and reboot is needed.
