Right click on the desktop , select properties , then appearance , then advanced , from the drop down boxes you can alter the font size , colour , window background , gradient across the top of a page , just about anything , have a play , it's fun !!

Hi, if I remember correctly that route does not allow one to change the Desktop Text colour, as per the original question.

Apologies if I am wrong!

Trans Text in my link above Does allow you to change the icon's text colour.
