Customization :: Cannot Remove Icon Label Drop Shadows - Keeps Putting Back On?

Sep 9, 2015

Windows 10 always keeps putting back the drop shadow for the label under the desktop icons. I go into System -> Advanced System Settings -> Performance and uncheck "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop". Click apply. If I do this at after logging off the shadows disappear. However at some random point in time a few minutes after it just puts them back on.

do not refer me to System/Advanced/Visual settings. I've removed every check mark in there referring to shadows and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING has changed. These shadows are making me go blind. I absolutely cannot read them.

Installation :: Desktop Icon Font Drop Shadows

Apr 5, 2015

Win 10 Tech Demo. I would like to have plain black text on my desktop icons. I have un-ticked the appropriate box to remove the subject drop shadows, but it did not remove them. I have checked the appropriate registry setting which is set to "0".

When I boot into Win 10, the icon font at first appears black but then the desktop "re-draws" and the drop shadows appear.

I have "Classic Shell" installed to give me the standard Windows 7 type Start Menu - could this be relevant?

How To Remove Shadows Under Icon Text On Desktop

Nov 22, 2015

I guess I should have come here first but I searched the internet on how to fix this aggravation. It seems the accepted way is to go into the Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings and uncheck the box for Use drop shadows for Icon labels on the Desktop. Been there, did that, rebooted, and absolutely nothing changed.

I went back to the same place and turned off the other two references to shadows, rebooted, and again, no effect anywhere that I could see.

Why making a double image of text would seem like a good idea. All it does for me is make it damn near impossible to read.

Customization :: Start Menu - How To Change Title / Label And Icon

Sep 5, 2015

I have Pinned a few sites to the start menu using Microsoft Edge. My problem is that all of them have the same "E" edge (internet explorer) icon. So unless I keep them at large size, or remember in what order they were pinned/arranged, I have no clue which pin is for which site.

When you click "Pin To Start" in the options menu in Edge, where are those pins stored?

Changing Font Size Of Desktop Icon Label

Feb 10, 2016

I wish to know if there is a way to change the font size/style (bold, etc.) of the icon labels ONLY on the desktop screen.

I've tried the Control Panel method (Appearance & Personalization -> Display) that allows me to change the fonts for 'ICONS'. However, this option also changes the appearance of fonts in the directories/filenames, which is not what I want.

E.g. Labels on the desktop with size 12 and bold. Fonts in folders: size 9 and UNbolded (default style).

Customization :: Hide Windows Remove USB Safely Tray Icon?

Oct 8, 2015

Any way to hide it for good? Not disabling it, because that could cause some trouble, just that doesn't show in the tray? A .reg file would be awesome.

I want this for 2 reasons: First, I don't use it, I use USB Disk Ejector; and second because it's wasting space. And don't worry, everything in there has a purpose, as myself installed everyone of them.

Getting The Recording Devices Drop Down Back

Jan 3, 2016

I've got the old volume mixer back, but it does not have the drop-down for inputs? With 4 various inputs now being forced drill down to the speaker cpl every time you want to set volume/mute/unmute an input, well that's a truly ridiculous regression in usability, I don''t suppose there is a reg hack to get the drop back??

I really don't get how things like this pass committee, "all in favor of putting the most useless volume mixer since dos in our flagship product?? Ok, the eyes have it, now get back to work we've got a lot removing., diminishing and disabling to do before this "upgrade" is ready!!"

Customization :: Open Links Explorer Navigation Pin As Drop Down?

Jan 31, 2016

Which registry setting allows you to open the Links (Common Places FS Folder) explorer navigation pin as a drop down, as was the default behavior prior to the quick access pin being added in Win10?

For example, the Reg below will pin the Links folder back to the Explorer Nav Pane, however since the placeholders in the Links folder are shortcuts and not actual directories, no dropdown is able to be produced in the way that Windows 8 and backwards was able to.

Quick Access unfortunately doesn't offer the ability to rename anything pinned to it.

For example, I have a shortcut in the Links folder for both Start Menu locations (ProgramData and AppData), which I've renamed to differentiate between the two, however doing the same with Quick Access pins two folders named Start Menu as pinned placeholders... obviously a programmer missed that caveat of Quick Access.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00; explorer shell:::{d34a6ca6-62c2-4c34-8a7c-14709c1ad938};
Links Folder (Common Places FS Folder)

Why Won't Computer Wake Up After Putting It To Sleep Mode

Oct 6, 2015

I have an HP pavilion g6 notebook laptop computer. I have recently upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. I had occasion to put my computer to sleep! I had been working on my college courses for a few hours, when I needed to take a break. I put my system to sleep, but when I returned to complete my assignments my computer would not turn on! It went to an off black screen, and locked up! When at sleep the power indicater blinked, which indicates that it was in sleep mode.

When I tried to awaken my Pavillion it locked up, and the only way to regain control was to manually force it to shut down (i.e. hooded power button down.) thinking this may be due to system clutter I cleaned both user disc & system files using the Windows disk cleaning function, found through the control panel, looked for both HP updates, and Windows updates.

Later I again tried to awaken my machine after putting it to sleep, and had a repeat in the inability to awaken it! A third and the last time I tried to awaken my PC from sleep I noticed that for some reason, and somehow the indicator light was solid, the screen black, and I heard my computers fan running!

Deleted The Folder Icon From Taskbar - How To Get It Back

I accidentally deleted the default folder icon that comes standard with Windows 10 home. Well, I didn't delete it, I hit the "Unpin from taskbar".

Where do these icons go when you unpin them? And how can I get it back?

I know I can replace it with File Explorer, but I like the files that are displayed with the standard folder icon.

Slip of the keyboard. I unpinned the folder icon that comes standard with Win 10 on the taskbar. I replaced it with File Explorer but it's not the same format. The folder icon that comes with Win 10 on the taskbar brings up the Libraries on the left, then the right side, I think, had folder and file listings. Don't remember - I did this about a month ago.

Drivers/Hardware :: Safely Remove Icon Not Working Properly

Nov 15, 2015

I just upgraded to Windows 10 1511 (November Update), and saw the new (modernized) Safely Remove icon in the system tray - and the problem, it's not working properly.(I know, it's a Windows 7 Screenshot, I found it online, it's just for reference).As we can see from the comparison, mine only shows the second row, that being the device description (Name and drive letter), and no longer shows "Eject Storage Device".

So the safely remove icon in the system tray is now practically useless. I search over, and found no one with the same issue, nor did I find any direct fix. I shutdown and reboot a couple of times, tried different USB devices and ports, I also did try a couple of related tweaks, like changing the removal policy, and scan for hardware changes, etc - but still, no luck.Though note, the eject function is still available through file explorer:
