Hey.. do any of you know how to make the icon backgrounds clear or transparent?... i can't seem to get it back.
If you don't know what i mean... i mean the color behind the text on shortcuts/icons...
Thanks

They ar naturally transparent unless you are using an active desktop. IF you allow for html or some other live content on the background, then the text is rendered with a background color.

Right click My Computer>Properties then click the advanced tab and under performance click the settings button, then in the list scroll down near the bottom and check "use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"
