    Let's say, for example, I had an icon on my desktop for My Documents. Is there any way to make the text "My Documents" black instead of white, because I cant see the white text on my white desktop picture.

    The only way I know how to change the icon background color is: Under
    'display properties' check "apearance" then check "desktop" and change the color there. It will also change the background color of your wallpaper if you don't have a picture there.

    Well that didn't actually change the text colour, but I did find a way to change the font, so I changed it to bold Arial and it's much more visible now. Thanks for the help.
