    • in reply to: MS-DEFCON 3: Should you patch? It depends. #2596713

      As happened with the September updates, The October updates (Susan gave a conditional go-ahead), My desktop icon text again has shadow font and once again I have tried all the ways that I can find through a google search. The “Visual Effects Performance Options” for drop shadows is unchecked, the registry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced DWORD ListviewShadow is set to zero. I looked in group policy editor on the desktop, desktop and there is no longer a switch to disable the shadows.

      My solution again was to roll back the updates which resolved the font shadows issue.

      I did not receive any helpful suggestions to the last post so I am hoping someone can offer a true solution.

      I am out of update pauses (will happen November 1st).

      I am positioning myself to do a full rebuild of my “C” drive but would prefer not to do that.

      Again, any suggestions?

      I use StartAllBack.  There’s more to it than is listed in their documentation.  Toolbars?

      StartAllBack-Toolbars

      Yeah, it’s got toolbars.

      Wow! Great thanks for this. If you use tool bars, could you shoot me a screen shot of your taskbar?

      My latest computer build hardware supports all Win 11 requirements but the number one reason I will not upgrade(?) to Win 11 is that the taskbar no longer appears to support toolbars. I have not seen a workaround for this or a different way to accomplish the same functionality. No third-party software seems to return this functionality.

       

       

      If anyone can address this issue, I would be happy to hear from you.

    • in reply to: Recycle Bin Dissapeared from Desktop in v1909 #2289671

      Well I recovered the recycle file. Apparently the recycle bin had been previously selected when I grabbed a different file and dragged it to a folder on my desktop. The recycle bin went along for the ride.

      I found the recycle bin in that folder and have put it back on my desktop.

      Wasted time for doing something that was my own fault.

      Sorry for wasting anyone’s time.

      I use WIN 7 and on my desktop are 30+ shortcuts and folders arranged and grouped based upon how they are used. When I install WIN 10, what will happen to my desktop and will I have any control?
