I notice that if I enable shadows on my desktop icon text, the
background becomes transparent and the text becomes white.
Unfortunately this doesn't look so good on my current desktop. If I
disable the shadow, then the background becomes solid and the text
becomes a contrasting colour to my background colour choice (even if
the background colour is replaced with an image.)
Is there a way to keep the icon text background transparent without
the shadows or reverting to white only text?
