Stupid Icon Question


OSNN Addict
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

Have you tried selecting adjust for best performance, applying it and then clicking adjust for best apperance?

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. :)
