Hi All,


Just wondering how to improve the fuzzy text and drop shadow problems I'm having with LR Classic 10.0

On the side panels there is, or what looks like drop shadows behind the text. See attached pics. I'm running Win 10 on a Dell XPS laptop with a Dell 24" Ultrasharp Monitor.  All software and drivers are up to date etc. 32GB Ram and i7 Processor etc.  I usually use the Dell Ultrasharp as a 2nd monitor and have the main LR window on the Laptop for the adjustment panles etc. When I swap it over it is worse - see image 4.

I've had to turn off Graphics Acceleration as when it is on it gives a small 2nd monitor view in the Main window but very small - see image 5.


Any ideas?


Thanks, Nic.
