    Just installed Win10 and everything seems to be working fine, drivers, games (after dx update) etc but, I don't if you can see in this img, the window shadows are really big. I'm using latest AMD beta drivers 14.9 (if it makes any difference). Anyone else experience this AND any fixes yet?

    Thank you

    Edit: this is what I was seeing, I reduced the contrast a little and the image is "normal" now

    The drop shadow is visible enough to be noticed, but I don't know if I really see it as a problem. Kind of used to exaggerated drop shadows with Ubuntu :p

    With that in mind though, I'm unsure if it can be tweaked or not.

    I like it it helps a lot by making the desktop feel more 3d it allows you to quickly tell which window is on top and the order they are stacked in

    Hm, I don't know, the shadow is nice depending on the background, on white I think it looks ugly :( but maybe it's just something I need to get used to

    Erm, I just saw those 2 imgs in another monitor and they look fine, maybe it's just the contrast of my screen :wallbash:

    Edit: photo of my screen :x
