Desktop icon text label

#1
Hello, usually when you put a check to use drop shadows for icon labels it would hide the colored box the text resides in. However, in this case it does not. Does anyone have a reg tweak or solution to this problem? I don't care if it's permanent as I never want the text highlighted as it is. Thanks

Are you using an active desktop? Or have you checked the Lock Items on Desktop option?
One of those two can cause the problem. Turn off active desktop or uncheck the Lock items option, if it was enabled.

you could try enabling active desktop+lock items and then disable them, see if that helps.

try this:

Right Click "My Computer" select "properties"
Click Advanced | Performance | Settings | Visual Effects |
Choose "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the Desktop"

Restart Windows.

Thanks PartieHonteuse but, perhaps you did not read my post?

Ah sorry, is it set to "Custom" and not windows choosing? That's what I forgot to post ....once again, sorry.

Thanks. I do not have active desktop enabled nor do I have anything locked on my desktop. :) Let's just say that I have tried all the obvious and even added a reg entry to enable it but it still does not work.
