I keep having to do a
taskkill /f /im "dwm.exe"
to get rid of the shadowing of say copy or edit

when I right click (not all the time but most of the time) the dialog item that I clicked say edit will stay on the screen and not go away.

Is there a way to fix this?

Hi, if I understand you this is what I call a ghost, like windows is not refreshing your display so it leaves a ghost, I used to be able to clear this with the degauze but times have changed.
you could try and do some maintenance update your video drivers.
Run a disc cleanup and defrag
Here's an example with their solution
Extract
Go to Start -> Run -> and type tskill dwm.
This command will reset the desktop window manager without the need to change the screen resolution.
Changing the screen resolution or colour depth also resets the desktop window manager,
