How do I highlight desktop icons?

  NewestRoyWidd1 19:23 14 Apr 2009

Follwing a recent clean re-install of XP Pro(sp2),could anyone please tell me how I can highlight the desktop icons so they stand out against the background,which is currently a jpeg?
I've done it in the past,but now cannot remember how.
Many thanks in advance,no real hurry because I won't be online again until later tonight.

Thanks Technotiger,apologies for not making myself clearer;What I'm after is to make the backgrounds of the text boxes under each icon a different colour to the text(example a yellow background with white text).Any ideas please?

Hello,thank you for those links,but neither of them did what's needed.I'll tick as resolved and carry on trying to figure out how to do it.
