    Guys this is my first post:

    How do I make my desktop icon text transparent i.e no text background only the icon name like "My Computer".



    I have a small tweak for absolutely no text:
    click on any icon
    Now back click>Rename
    Press Alt+0160

    Note:The numbers should be pressed from the numpad keys.


    Thanx in advance

    press windows key+pause break to go to system properties. Then go to advanced>performance>settings and u see many chech boxes checked or unchecked according to ur desktop settings. Check the second option from downwords "use dropdown shadows for icon levels on the desktop". Apply. And don't forget to uncheck "lock web items on desktop" by right clicking on the desktop. This is for XP. And thanks for the no text tweak :)
