I am using Windows Server 2012. I know it's a windows server and visual appearance isn't that important but I use the desktop a lot and some windows effects such as the drop shadow makes locating items on my desktop so much easier.
Lately the desktop icons broke. The drop shadow doesn't work properly. When I selected an icon and then deselect it the drop shadow disappears. Sometimes the shadow is deformed and I see some weird black spots around the text making it even harder to read.
Also, the rectangle selection lost it's effects too on my desktop. I just see the plain old dotted rectangle like in windows 98.
Has anyone run into similar problems?
