I just learned today how to make desktop icons in Windows XP with no text underneath them.
Make sure that everything on your desktop is a shortcut. No original folders, exes, anything. Check them all for the little arrow meaning shortcut.
–You can do this with system folders, just make a shortcut for them, say “My Computer”, and then go to display properties, customize desktop, and then shut the originals off.
Pick one of the shortcuts. Right Click, Rename, and then hold the alt key and type ON THE NUMPAD 255. So that’s “Alt 255” .
Let go of the Alt key. Press Enter.
Go to the next shortcut. Rename it like so. Hold alt, type 255, then let go of alt, hold alt and type 255 again, and then enter.
Continue with all of your shortcuts, and Add one “alt 255” to each one, 3, 4, 5, 6 and so on. It gets to be a pain when you have a lot of shortcuts.
DISCLAIMER: IF YOU ACCIDENTLY MISPLACE FILES DOING THIS, IT’S YOUR FAULT!!! DON’T TRY TO BLAME ME, STALK ME, OR KILL ME IN MY SLEEP. THAT’S ALL.
I think you should make them all shortcuts not for any real “computery” reason, it’s just so that you don’t have a bunch of no-name files and folders. Also because you can’t rename some icons, like “My Computer”.
How do you make the icons bigger? Just changing your resolution?
