Hi everyone, my preferred desktop background is light coloured.
Is there a way on changing the text below the screen icons from white to something darker as it would be easier to see. I have looked but can't find an option for this.
The Desktop icon fonts are dynamic and will show white on dark backgrounds and change to white with a black shadow effect on a light background.
Go to CONTROL PANEL and in the "search control panel" bar at the top type in "COLOR SCHEME"
then click on the CHANGE WINDOWS COLORS AND METRICS that pops up in the list DESKTOP will automatically come up and, the default color of the background is black therefore making the font of the icons white.
If you turn the color to white the font will now be black.
In XP I am going to control panel, clicking the search icon (magnifying glass)and then typing COLOR SCHEME into the address bar then press the go button but nothing happens at first and then I get a message "page cannot be displayed" I would seem I am doing something fundamentally wrong.
bumpkin, I think you will have to type the word: and and not use & (uppercase 7) I think the thread titles can't cope with display of the 'funny characters' due to the formatting of text pca are using.
