This is in respect of icons on the wallpaper, I did know how to do this but I have forgotten, I want to take away the coloured square behind the text. I have been to system advanced but can't seem to find the right box to untick. Thanks for your help

No that didn't work, I tried that before, I think you have to untick one of the boxes which just leaves the text which I want. Thanks anyway

I have set up my theme,icons etc through Style XP. When I do as you suggest for some reason it goes back to the classic style. I then have to mess about with everything again. As I say its just stupid but annoying I am certain I am only a click away.

Right click My Computer>Properties>Advanced tab>Performance
Check the "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop" option. :)

I'm a bit further East, well any further East and you end up in the Sea! Near Sunny Lowestoft.

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 https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
