How do I get rid of desktop icon background color in XP?

Post by paulelliott on October 10th 2011, 11:00 am

Hi all,

My issue is hopefully a simple one to fix. I'm running XP Professional (SP2) on my home computer. All my desktop icons show the background color behind each icon's name. I want to get rid of that. I know it can be done, because my computer at work has the same OS and the desktop icons are all "clear". I did some checking in the desktop properties, but I'm unable to find how to make the change. How do I fix this? Any advise on this would be great help.

Thanks.

Hi,
This is an Forumotion support forum and support is given for that only. You should google a bit, something like this maybe http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows/why-do-my-icons-have-a-background-color-in-windows-xp/

Very good

Hi, Paul..

You can try this one,


1. Right click on My computer
2. Click properties
3. Go to advanced tab.
4. Under Perfomance click Settings
under Visual Effect
Use Adjust for Best Appearance and Apply.
Probably this works, if not check or unchecks some shadow boxes and then apply...

Let me know it if works Wink
