    Just do the following:
    Right click "My Computer" and select Properties
    Click Advanced
    Under Performance, click Settings
    Check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on desktop"
    Click Ok
    Then Ok .......

    That should do it...Good Luck !!!

    I'm trying to do the same thing ( I think)
    I have made a few icons in MS Paint

    When I do the change icon thing in Win98SE the change results like this <img src="http://people.ne.mediaone.net/buck52/web/images/techguyico1.jpg">




    When I do it in XP With ( the same icon) it looks like this <img src="http://people.ne.mediaone.net/buck52/web/images/techguyico.jpg">

    Hope that explains what <b>comprocket</b> is looking for also

    Any more thoughts
