How to Make Desktop Icons Text Background Transparent

One of the reasons XP’s desktop looks so much better is that you can make the background of your icon text transparent.
People ask me all of the time what program I use to make my icon text transparent. People are used to the pre-XP days when this was not easily possible.

This ability is currently very easily accomplished in XP. The feature is just not well named.

1. Open the Control Panel
2. Click System
3. Click the Advanced tab
4. Click Settings in the Performance section
5. Check the “Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop” checkbox
6. Click OK until you close the windows
