    DragFullWindows - Show Window Contents While Dragging does not work

    Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it? No matter what I do, I cannot get the "Show window contents while dragging" feature to work in my Windows 10 environment. I have replaced the video card, updated drivers, fully cleaned drivers and re-installed, etc. I tried to set up a new / clean user profile thinking it might be user profile related. My video card is currently an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 TI. Previously, it was an GTX 430. Both cards acted the same, so I don't think it's the card. Something else in windows is causing this. Please don't tell me to make sure the "Show window contents while dragging" option is selected in the "Visual Effects" control panel applet. Anyone know of some way to debug this problem? It drives me crazy to only see the window outline when I drag a window around. Thanks for your help!

    Can confirm it works ok on Windows 10 Pro 2004 with GTX1050Ti and Nvidia 446.14 drivers using the Properties, Advanced System Settings, Show window contents while dragging, option.
    So there is something not quite right with your settings, maybe try SFC and/ or DISM to see if you have some files in need of repair (repair can also mean swapping a file for an updated version if existing version is wrong).
