Windows 7: No Drop Shadows on Certain Applications

27 Nov 2010   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
No Drop Shadows on Certain Applications

Hello everyone!

Hoping that someone could shed some light on this. I noticed something about Windows 7 that irks me a bit. Applications that are custom skinned (such as Chrome, Winamp, Trillian) do not have the same drop shadow all other windows do.

Any chance these can be added?

I use Yz's Shadow on XP, but it only has an option of excluding windows, would be nice if I could use it to add shadows to only some windows.

//edit: Tried the latest version of Yz's Shadow and it works, but the added shadow to regular windows is pretty dark. So, hoping for a solution still
