Just wanting to know how to make it so that the font on the desktop icons doesn't have the background color behind it... You know, how you can make it so that it's JUST the font.. and the background is viewable behind it. So no blocks of background color displaying behind the text and whatnot. Never been able to figure this one out. >.<
Oh yeah, windows XP of course.

Depends...sometimes, its just a setting problem, but sometimes it's a really hoarked up windows system.

If it's the setting, Right click MY COMPUTER, choose PROPERTIES, choose ADVANCED tab, choose SETTINGS in PERFORMANCE. Scroll down the list and check USE DROP SHADOWS for ICON LABELS...
