    Fix For The Desktop Icons Drop Shadows Keep Displaying Issue


    Finally found why unchecking the selection box in System Properties > Advanced Settings > Performance Options > Visual Effects > "Use Drop Shadows For icon Labels On The Desktop" doesn't work to disable the drop shadows under the desktop icons.

    In addition to unchecking that option, you ALSO have to:

    Go to Windows 10 Settings Panel > Personalization > Colors > (scroll down to the bottom) > and TURN OFF the button that says " Make Start, taskbar, and action center transparent"

    Then ReBoot.

    Voila! No more fugly drop shadows under the desktop icons.
