Underlines under desk top icons

Hi Does anyone know how to get rid of the underlines under the desk top icons. I have managed it once before but can't find it again. I have had to wipe my hard drive and start again and they are there once more. Di

Or go to Control Panel>Folder Options then Dot, in Underline icon titles only when I point at them.
