Blue Shadow Under Desktop Icons

By l_grieco ·
I recently purchased a new computer with XP home ediition. In the past I have been able to remove the 'blue' shadow box under the icon descriptions leaving only the text. I have tried the following: right click my computer - select advanced tab - then under performace, settings I would uncheck "shadows under menus'. This is not working. Can some one offer any other options/ideas. Thanks in advance for any input

Preventing those icon shadows

by felixq78 In reply to Solution(Finally)

This won't work if the file is a PNG file, the shadows remain so I just saved the picture file as a JPG file and then used it for the wallpaper and BINGO! No shadows.
