    icon color change

    I struggled with this for some time but I found a way. If you have the background set to picture, set it to Solid color. Chances are it's black by default. This is forcing a white font color regardless what you select for a picture. Change it to say orange, which will make the font color black. Now change the background back to picture, and you should have a black icon font color.
    I just tried this and while the background was orange the icon text was black, but when I changed the orange back to a picture, the icon text returned to white. Nice job MS!

    Did you try something more excessive, like white background? They might have changed the threshold, though orange still shows black font for me.

    You need to turn off 'drop shadows' in advanced appearance settings...

    DJG I tried what you said but as others have said when I change back to picture it goes back to white. I also don't have drop shadow ticked. Thanks for the effort and it seems to work for some people but not me and some others, this is no surprise 2me because with Micro$oft Windoze anything is possible Thanks again.
