Desktop Icons' transparency





riyadh
I forgot how to make the icons in the desktop transparent so that it blends in with the wallpaper. Can someone please help??

Well for starters what operating system are you using.

For Windows use WindowsBlinds or Object Desktop.
Mac - no need to do anything (just a simple control panel tweak).
Linux - no idea - try searching Google.

XP specific -

Windows Key + Pause|Break (brings up system properties dialog) ->
Advanced tab -> Performance settings -> "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop"

If I understood you correctly.

Not only can you easily make the background of your desktop icons transparent, but you can do about 50 other nifty things, as well.

Like...


* Take complete and total control over every aspect of your color schemes and appearance.

* Create & package full Windows desktop themes with ease

* Change your logos, wallpaper, screensaver, web view images, cursors, file type icons and sounds easily & quickly.


And it's 100% FREEWARE!

Give it a try, man.
I've been using it for years now.
I honestly think you'll enjoy it.
