    Buttons Missing on Windows 10 Metro Apps with Dual Graphics Enabled


      I first installed Windows 10 on 8/6/15 (two days ago) and have had a problem with Metro Apps since the start.  I am using a Radeon HD6670 in Dual Graphics Mode with an AMD A8-3870K APU.


      The title bar on Metro apps is blank.  The buttons are "still there" in that the functions work in the locations on the titlebar where the butttons should be.  Also, tool tips pop up when hovering over those locations.  But nothing is visible where the buttons should be.  Just dead space the same color as the rest of the titlebar.


      I discovered that disabling Dual Graphics fixes the problem.  The buttons become visible when Dual Graphics is disabled.  This problem exists with the driver that Windows 10 supplied and also the latest downloaded driver from the AMD web-site.  I did not try the Beta driver.


      I've attached a screen shot showing the problem.  The pointer is hovering over where the X should be on the Weather App and the "close" tooltip shows up.

          I had this exact same problem. I tried many versions of the driver without success, only disabling the dual graphics would alleviate the symptoms. I have an A10(R7 graphics) and a PCI-E R7 card, so I would have thought they would work as they had in Windows 8.


          In addition to those symptoms, I had several programs crash with messages similar to this:
