Hey all. Just one really easy question here. On the desktop, the icons have a... blank surounding the text below them. How do you turn it off?

No. Ok. The icon has writting under it yes? That writting has a blank background ans white writting. How do you remove the black (it isn't the desktop).

Control Panel - Sysytem - Advanced -
tick your requirements here.
Suggest "use drop shadows for icon labels on desktop" is ticked.

Hi JS,

There is a little Free app called IconDesk that gives you
heaps of options to include toggle on/of for icons,or just
leave the icon with no title under,etc,etc!Easy to configure.

Cheers,Kiwitas,;-)
