Desktop Icon Font Color--Any Hack to Change it to Black?

Hi, i recently upgraded one of my XP running computer to Windows Vista Business. Everything is working fine but i just wanted to know about changing fonts color on desktop icons. As of now my desktop icons tests are in weird color and want to change it to something attractive. Is there any way in Vista business from the settings we can change the same> Many Thanks.

Nope,, i dont think there is any way you can change the fonts color in Window Vista because as you know desktop wallpaper images have different colors, it is simply for all font colors to turn unreadable if they are in the same color as of the wallpaper image. For instance a black font on top of a dark part of the background image or a white font on a white part of a background image.But if still you want you can try out the following settings:
  • Go to Control Panel and click System.
  • Go to System Properties window and select Settings in the Performance Row under advanced tab.
  • Here scroll down and uncheck the "Use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop". Click Apply, ok and close the window.

See if it works.
