hi,
i wanted to copy a photo from face book , when i tried to past it to my desktop, the computer asked me ((do you want to add an active desktop icon to your desktop)). i clicked yes, the photo didn't past in desk top, but all my desk top icons got a shadow. Now i don't know how to remove the shadows from icons of my desktop, Can any one help me?
