  1. im sure this is the right forum? *slightly wary*

    anywayz, heres my problem
    i have an active desktop with a black theme, but the backdrop to all the text under my icons is white. How can i change this?

    in other words i have the icon which looks fine
    then the text under, ie My Computer is black font with a white backdrop, how do i change this?

    active desktop ?

    i tried this also, but that only changes the color of the shadow on the icons, not the backdrop of the text unfortunately.

    im running Media Centre Edition if that makes any difference?

    try the Theme settings; CP->Display->Appearance
    click Advanced
    the Choice box labelled Item: has several components that can be altered

    try looking into programs that changes the styles of your desktop, like StyleXP or windowsblinds or something.. they might help (i'm guessing..)
