    I was wondering how do you make the text on the side of the icon instead of underneath it?

    yah ive seen pictures of desktops like that and they use some program to do it but the only draw back I was was all the icons were small like when you view details in a folder.
     
  5. A lot of people asked that question on Neowin and theres a program that does it... go check there.

  7. Oh, I dont think thats possible.. maybe some registry hack but I doubt it.

    I think it would have to do with font spacing and Im thinking that would be really complex..
