Hi, I've decided to open programs on my desktop by single clicking, but when I hover over the icon, it underlines like a webpage. what I want to do is get rid of the underline when I hover over the desktop icons when I single click to open. Anyone know how to hack registry to do this????

Old XP way, may still be W7 compatible.

Control Panel > Folder Options , look under Click items as follows , and select eitherUnderline icon titles only when I point at them or Double-click to open an item .

No, what I want is, Single click desktop icon to open programs. I have that setting on in folder options already. at this point, none of the icons on the desktop are underlined. but when I hover over an icon, the highlighted icon becomes underlined. I don't want the highlighted icon to become underlined at all. So, single click to open programs, but NO underline when mouse hover over the icon.
