    Sorry - it pasted in large and then went tiny.....I highlighted a few icons, but you can tell I have them scattered, and now that I've eliminated that fuzzy shadow, the white letters are on a white background. How to I change the color of the titles? Thanks!!

    Whilst the colour of the desktop font seems not to be under user control as it was in Win 7, from what I recall, it was meant to change dynamically to be more visible - at least in older Windows editions.

    There is a fudge for Win 10-
    Desktop Icon Color Change - Accessibility Option - Windows 10 Forums

    Another aspect of this is- Do you have drop shadows for icon labels enabled? It doesn't look as if you do.
