Icon Word's missing

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Icon Word's missing

There are two ways you can affect the 'Names' of icons.

Individual names. select an icon, right hand click, then select 'rename'. This allows you to change the name, or wording that goes with an icon, and only affects the icon selected.

Icon Properites as a group. place the cursor anywhere in the desktop window where there is no icons or anything. Right hand click, select 'Properties', slect the tab 'Appearance', activate the 'Advanced' button. This opens a window where you can change the appearance properties of the desktop. Use the 'drop down' list in the box called 'Item' to select the Icon settings. Ensure that it has a font selected and a readable font size (8 is the usual setting).

Also check the colour setting for the 'Item' - 'Selected Items' if this font colour is the same as your background it wont show.

If these settings are OK I dont know how you will fix the problem, except to try either a reboot or a 'Restore' to a date when it was known to be working.
