Desktop Icon Help



This may seem silly but something happened to my desktop icons last night and I cannot figure out how to fix it. I was running 16 bit color quality and all my desktop icons were normal colors and looked good. Now suddenly, I have noticed that the icons have lost much of their color and look very plain and ugly. When I switch to 32 bit color quality, I get all the colors back. Does anyone know how I can get back my colors in 16 bit ? Thanks in advance.

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

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
