I have one computer on which the names of desktop icons appear without boxes
around them, but on this one I can't figure out how to get the icon title to
"blend in" with the desktop background. Does that make sense?
There must be an "advanced" option here but I need help finding it.
Thanks so much.

Your suggestion led me to check the settings in System Advanced and I found
that I had previously unchecked "Use drop shadows under desktop icons." I
checked it and the problem is resolved. Thanks a million.
