Win 10 transparency and effects not working since 2022 drivers release

Hello,

I would like to report an issue with the 2022 drivers releases : the transparency & blurry effects of taskbar and start menu are not working anymore

Downgrading to driver 21.12.1 restore the effects.

I do not understand why this issue occurs with the latest versions

Note that I tried to completely uninstall drivers (with DDU) and does not restore effects as well..


I reported the issue with the bug report feature on AMD Software

Hi, I have the same problem with Windows 10 and RX5700. Since 22.1.1 drivers the transparency effects are broken.

I'm seeing the same issue with 22.2.1

Tried doing a clean install of them and Windows 10 transparency effects always break once these drivers are in.

Windows transparency effects start working again after downgrading to 21.10.2 (WHQL).

I would like to add something regarding the issue: it seems random and related to the "night shift" feature of Win10.. it's like the colors shifting affects somehow..

Hello,

AMD is aware of this issue, we just have to wait..!

On my side, the issue was gone after some soft reboots and/or days, but reappear on installing new drivers version, or after hard reboot at random times (when windows update needs computer hard reboot for example)

Hello, the problem is still present with 22.3.1 drivers. Unbelievable.

This issue should now be resolved in 22.3.1.

Please download the driver from the release notes. https://www.amd.com/en/support/kb/release-notes/rn-rad-win-22-3-1

Whilst running the installer, please perform a Factory Reset and restart your system before checking to see if the issue is resolved for you.

No it's not resolved.. Every single 2022 driver has broken acrylic blur on Windows 10. Factory reset will not solve it. I have reference card RX 6700 XT from MSI and it's broken. Last one properly working was 21.12.1. Pathetic..
