View Full Version : XP desktop icon transparent text

20-07-2008, 12:08 AM
I have spent far too many hours trying to get rid of the blocked text background on desktop icons on a friend's machine. There are several solutions (google will show you) but none of the accepted settings I tried helped.

Finally, I found the answer in a forum. So, in the hope that it may help someone else, my solution was to go to ctrl panel/accessibility/Display/ and uncheck 'High Contrast'.

Much relief as I don't like to be beaten!
