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????
I recently discovered how to configure Single Click with NO UNDERLINE...
Here's how to do it:
1) Open Folder Options:http://i.imgur.com/5d5W8IZ.png
Under the heading "Click items as follows"
> Select "Single-click to open an item (point to select)
> Select "Underline icon titles consistent with my browser"
> Click "Apply", then "OK" to close the dialog box
And now for the magic part that makes this all work:
2) Open Microsoft Internet Explorer (yes, that's right Internet Explorer, the browser most none of us use, but is still lurking on our hard drives).

> Click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the IE window
> Scroll down and select "Internet Options"
3) Click on the "Advanced" tab http://i.imgur.com/BpZ2ecT.png
> Scroll down a bit until you find the "Underline links" heading
> Click on "Never"
> Click on the "Apply" button, then "OK" to close the dialog box.
4) Test the results:
Go to your desktop and open a new window, then hover over an icon—and then another and then a few more—look! No underline! Amazing! You get the ease of use with the Single click option, but without the annoying underlines!
