I'm using a wallpaper, and behind the text underneath each icon is the
desktop color. Is there any way to get rid of that and have the text directly
over the wallpaper image? (so I can see the wallpaper under the text?)

WinKey + Break -> System Properties/Advanced/Performance Settings/Visual
Effects... scroll down and check "Use drop shadows for icon labels on
desktop."

Hi Donald,

Checkpoints to consider:

1) Right click on desktop >> arrange icons by >> uncheck "Lock Web items on
desktop"

2) Right click on My Computer >> Properties >> Advanced tab >> Settings
under 'Performance' >> check "Use drop shadows
for icon labels on desktop".
