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
Right click my computer, click properties, advanced tab, performance settings, click adjust for best apperance.
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.
It's just a matter of finding which click to click on!
Thanks for your input, much appreciated. I see you come from Suffolk, so do I in Haughley Village nr Stowmarket.
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.
Problem solved I right clicked on the desktop, clicked on arrange icons by and saw that the lock Web items on desktop was clicked, I removed that and then it all came good. Thanks a bunch chaps.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
