what the icon for, If its something you dont really use alot than just delete it. Umm if you do need it, for Active Desktop, im sure you can have that Program Launch use a icon instead of text! Not sure how but i think its somewhere on this site!
Make the text of the desktop icons transparent: did you ever want the desktop icon text to be transparent ? Use this option to make the background picture of your desktop shine through the text of your desktop icons. This feature will remain active after a restart of Windows until you uncheck this option. Attention: This feature will only work when 'Font smoothing' (see below) is disabled.
