On my desktop the words on my icons are always colored, how would I get them to become see through?
Assuming you are running Windows XP, right click the desktop, in one of the context menus it will say "Lock Web Icons To Desktop" try unchecking that.
Thanks a million, I have been trying to figure that out for ever! Oh and one more question, My XP computer keeps going to the log out screen after so long, how would I fix that?
Right. You right click the desktop, click "Properties", and click the screen saver tab. Try unchecking the box "Go to welcome screen..." (I forget the rest)
And no problem mate. :)
It worked! Thanks again. Do you have any more tips about that kind of stuff?
Well - I dunno? What do you want to do Deadpool? If you find your Recycle Bin keeps sticking to the top left hand corner of the sceen, right click the desktop, and look for "Auto Arrange". Normally it's in "Arrange Icons By".
I'm sorry I should be more specific, I mean stuff like cool screen savers, themes, background pictures, exedra. :)
You want cool screensavers and stuffs? :P Right:
Are pretty hot on the market. You can also Google for "Vista Wallpapers" "Vista Screensavers" and so on.
I got everything I need! Thanks!
Not a problem. =)
