Can anyone tell me how to do this? I need the test label backgrounds to be transparent and the text to be black. I'm sure this is possible, I just can't figure out how to do it. Any help will be appreciated, and thanks in advance.

If you're using windows xp:

Control Panel->System->Advanced Tab->Performance Settings->Make sure "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the Desktop" is checked.

Also, right click on the desktop...Arrange Icons By...

and make sure that there is no check by "Lock items on Desktop"

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
