I would like to remove the text from below all the icons on my desktop...How do I go about doing this...If I try to just delete the text through properties it will not allow me to do that...Anyone have any suggestions??

Having Problems

I am having problems renaming them...It worked great for two icons but then on subsequent icons I get a message telling me that i already have an icon named <blank> and to enter another name...Any workarounds for this...There must be as I have seen lots of screenshots of people's desktops on this site and nobody seems to have text under their icons...thanks in advance

yes, hold down Alt and press 255. Also, make sure u press the numbers that are in the lower-right hand corner, not the ones in a straight row on top.

i'm having the same problem as Dodisman...

keeps telling me that i'm already using that
name...

i tried alt-0160, alt-255, and space (which just
reverts to what it was named before)

using xp pro

any help?

thanks...

heres the thing

if you have alt + 255 for all of them then only 1 will change to that

you have to keep incrementing alt + 255 (one instance... 2 instances so on so forth) and you will be fine...

make sure you do this... alt + 255 release alt... alt + 255 release alt... and so on and so forth..

thats the SIMPLE way of doing it :)

there are probably other ways to do it.. but I don't know em...
