O.P. Desktop Items have Highlightd text.
I was wondering if anyone knew how to put desktop items back to default. For example my desktop items all have the text in a highlighted colour (God knows how they went like that) and I want them to go back to normal where you can see the background behind the text and not a highlighted colour. Can anyone help?

Assuming you're using Windows XP. Right click on the desktop. Click Properties. Choose the theme "Windows XP" click apply. If you use the classic theme choose "Windows Classic".

If you want to disable that option only, go to System in the control panel. Go to the advanced tab, select performance settings. In the box, put a checkmark next to "Use drop shadows for icons on the desktop"

I know a certain format of image does this.. Try setting a different background if you already haven't.
