Hey,

If I understand what you're asking, then yes, you can. It's pretty simple too. Follow these directions:

Right click My Computer
Choose Properties
Advanced Tab
Under Performance click the Settings button
Under the Visual Effects tab scroll down to 'Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop'
Tick that (make sure it has a check next to it)
Apply/Ok

That should do it, hope that helps. :tazz:
