Hi,
This is a relatively insignificant problem, but one that I would like to solve. I changed desktop scenes from Autumn to one that I downloaded. Now the background of each icon is of a color of my selection, but previously the icon text simply appeared over Autumn without any background showing. How do I remove the background color. Thanks for any help.

Give this a shot.

Windows XP

* Open System Properties in Control Panel, choose the Advanced tab, and click Settings in the Performance section. Turn on the Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop option, and click Ok.
* You can also try MicroAngelo (v5.5 or later), which allows you to change the text color, configure custom icons, and change other aspects of Windows.
* Another utility of this type is WindowFX.

Windows 2000

* Obtain and install the Transparent utility.
* You can also try the "On Display" feature of MicroAngelo for lots of extra features.

Windows 95, 98, Me

* Obtain and install the Disappear utility (4 kb). You'll need VB40032.DLL (381 kb) if you don't already have it.
* You can also try the "On Display" feature of MicroAngelo for lots of extra features.

Go here for the files listed in the Win 2000, Win 95,98, Me

Thanks. Saw that one somewhere and went the Control-Panel route but nothing changed.
