I acciedentally changed my desktop icon text properties. Originally the text
was white and had a shadow effect to mske them look dimensional. Now, the
text is black and surrounded by a color. Definetly not as good looking, how
do I go back?

Hi,

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".

i'm not sure where you made that change, but you might try the following
steps and see if things go back to normal:
right-click on your desktop
click "Properties"
select the "Appearance" tab
under "Windows and buttons:" change the field between "Windows Clasic style"
and "Windows XP style"
click [Apply]
then swith the field back to your preference and click [Apply] again
