desktop icon text colour?


Hello all,
Sorry, I am not sure if this has be asked before.
My question is how I can change the text colour of the desktop icon in Windows XP?

I can easily change this in Windows 95, 98, 98SE, and 2k, but I can't find anywhere in Windows XP.

(I have a nice white wallpaper)

Thanks.

Choice of color does not seem to be an option.

How about no text. That is possible.

Send a message via AIM to slk230mb
To change the color you have to diable one of the 'Themes Services'

1. Right click on My Computer, select Properties
2. Select the Advanced tab
3. Then the Performance button
4. Uncheck the 'Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop' box
5. Then click Apply, OK, OK

Now @ the desktop

6. Right click anywhere on the screen and select properties
7. Choose the Desktop tab
8. In the lower right hand corner choose the color that you would like
9. Apply, the OK and your are done!

Hope this helps

--Steve

Still only shows desktop color on mine? Does not show how to change icon text color. Win Xp Pro build 2600

Edit: If you choice a light desktop color, the text changes from white to black. Are those my only choices?
