Desktop Text Background Color

After installing XP on a new machine, I noticed that the text on it’s desktop had a background color when it should be transparent. If you run into the same problem, try this…

  1. Go to your “Control Panel”
  2. Double click on “System”
  3. Select the “Advanced” tab
  4. Click on “Settings” in the Performance category
  5. Scroll down and make sure the “Use drop shadow for icons labels on desktop” option is checked

That should do it.
