Active Desktop Woes



Ok i've just changed my desktop, see attached picture for part of my new desktop. However you can see that now, since it is Active Desktop, I have a white background to the icon text. Is there any way of getting rid of this (making it transparent) or at least changing from the default white color it has set?

That's just the way it works with Active Desktop. Unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to fix it. It was discussed so many times when Matt created the active desktop tutorial, here on NTFS.
I had to resort to taking screenshots of icons and creating image maps with hyperlinks to open them. :p
Or you could just hide all the icons and make text links on your active desktop web-page. That looks pretty neat actually.
Another alternative is to hide all your icons from the desktop, then right click the Taskbar, click Toolbars and select Desktop. That's going to create a small toolbar on your taskbar with all your desktop icons. :)
Well for extra peformance when using active desktop, 32-Bit icons and transparent labels are disabled no matter what your settings are (Typicaly they are overridden)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
