Change The Color Behind The Icon
If you use Desktop Themes, they will change the appearance of your Desktop in many different ways. Of course, what if you like your new wallpaper but it is difficult to see your icons. You can change the background of your Desktop icons by following these steps:
- Right-click the desktop, select Properties, and in the Display Properties dialog box, then click the Appearance tab.
- Under Item, select Desktop, then choose your color of choice in the Color dropdown palette.
- Click OK, and the boxes around your desktop icon labels will take on a whole new hue.
- If you don't see the color change right away after clicking the OK button, then do a right-click and select Refresh option.
Now the icons should appear different. They will really stand out if you use a dark background such as black or dark blue, etc.
