    Desktop icon label drop shadows always on after snap windows




    As shown in this video (you might have to set the quality to 720p), you can switch on and off the drop shadows of your Windows 10 desktop icon labels.

    However, after using the auto arrange snap window function (drag and drop any window to the left or right edge of your screen) the drop shadows are always on and cannot be switched off again. Only logging off and in again helps.

    Can anyone reproduce this or knows how to fix it?

    Hi, Win 10 pro - can confirm I see that after using Snap. Normal function is restored if you restart explorer via the task manager.

    Suggest you report it via the Feedback Hub app e.g.

    http://www.thewindowsclub.com/drop-s...or-icon-labels
    - gives a relevant registry key; maybe it can be 'fixed' or worked around using that.

    I found this tutorial for 8 downwards but there isn't the equivalent here:

    Thanks for these hints and also for pointing out that the proper name for what I meant was "snap" windows. I changed the thread title appropriately. :-)
    Will consider making that report and post any results back in this thread.
