    Look at my Icons text background.

    I want that colour to go away. To be invisble.. just the text.

    Please someone tell me how to remove the background colour.

    Thank you very much.

    Simply go to Display Properties, the Desktop tab, and set the colour in the bottom right to the colour of your desktop.;)

    I'm not 100% sure about this, but i think you have to check 'Drop shadow for desktop icon tekst'
    (or something like that - i have a Dutch version.) under Visual effects.

    Right click My Computer --> Properties --> Advanced ---> Visual effects.

    Cant remember exact location of the option, but I think its in desktop properties tab in display properties called "lock desktop"..if that is enabled.. the transparancy goes. Uncheck it. I think its web something part. Sorry away from my XP machine at the moment.
