XP Desktop Icons?

  2ubuffy 10:16 27 Nov 03

My desktop icons have a solid colour for the txt background.

Can anyone tell me how I get the clear background i.e. icon txt to have the background of the wallpaper.
I've tried changing most of the desktop themes and Icon settings with no luck.
Thanks in advance for any advice....

Hi 2ubuffy.

Right click desktop > properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web and if there is a tick in the Lock desktop items, then take it out. I think that should do it. Good luck.

Right click my computer, properties, advanced tab,performance settings make sure there is a tick in "use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"
