Icon madness

  ICF 18:47 22 May 2005

My desktop icons have gone funny.The writing used to be on a see-through back ground but know they are displayed on a blue back ground which I can change to any colour.How do I get them back to normal?

Disable "Active Desktop"....

Right-Click onto the desktop, select properties and then click onto the "Desktop" tab.... Then click onto "Customise Desktop" button and click onto the "Web" tab.... Then just "untick" ALL the boxes and click onto OK.... You should now find that the icons are now on a "transparant" background (see through to your wallpaper)

If not, TweakUI click here

Repair, Icons.

You can set all your icons to the default windows settings by diong the following. Right click on the desktop and select properties. Next click on appearance. (Don't know which OP system you are using but this part is faily similar for all) Click on the selections near the foot of this page and select all default settings.
This should set everything back to the way it was when the system was first installed.
