How to change color text icon in Windows 7?

I spent an hour of Googling with no response.

I tried other forums without success.

The only answers I can find only apply to Windows XP.

I want to change the color of the text on the icons on my desktop and I'm running Windows 7 64.

I had to to the title of the window color and appearance, and went down to the police of icon, but the color is grayed out and I can't change it much matter what I do.

I can only change the size and the police, but not the color.

The thing is, I know there is a way to change the color of the text, because he was black and I was messing around with a few different options and know that it's white and after about an hour and a half of googling and trying to figure out what I did I can not yet understand how to change it back.

I took a screenshot of the area is gray and me being not able to change the setting, but I didn't know how to post it here, so I just did my avatar.

It can be quite difficult to do, but it's the best I know how to do.

Help, please.

There is no way simple and direct way to change the font color of desktop in Windows 7.  From what I see, Windows will judge the background color and the font color of black if the background is bright, but you have to log market again to see this change - at least sometimes.

There is a downloadable freeware tool called TransText which allows editing directly.  Note: I have not personally used this tool.  And there is a secondary problem with the evolution of a light dark police using a tool like this, and that is that you have to disable the 'shadow' effect in the performance Options dialog box. When Windows performs the change she manages both the shadow.

Keep in mind that the "BOLD" of the police Variant can be selected, which makes it a little easier to read.

  • How to change the text box in Acrobat XI, created by earlier versions of Acrobat

    Hi, I'm having a hard time trying to figure out how to change a text box that was created in an older version of Acrobat and used to fill in a form.

    In my case, I added text boxes on text pre-existing using an earlier version of Acrobat.

    When I try to click on the text box, however, it seems to be back on the existing text and not allow me to change the text box I created in the past.

    Try changing the text with the tool 'Add comment text' which is in the notes pane. The text used to complete the form may have been written as annotation, so when you try to change those with editing tools, the original text is being edited.

  • How to change the text color in CS4

    Hey everybody. I know I'm not comfortable in Dreamweaver, but had DW8 before moving to CS4 and I'm pretty handy with it. In version 8, if I wanted to change a text color, I simply highlighted text and choose a color. No worries.

    However in CS4, I seem to be only have this ability in my CSS, (not the HTML properties) properties. Then, when I try to change the color, it gives me a dialog box asking questions such as 'new CSS', 'for this page only", etc. and I don't understand what I'm supposed to do.

    Can someone tell me in a friendly way (step by step) how to change just one color of text on a page? I went to help and he said to use the color picker, but brings back me to my original problem.

    I'm either something terribly wrong or ADOBE did a simple task in the brain surgery!

    Thanks in advance for the help!

  • How to change the text after the script to the Calendar Wizard creates a calendar

    I mainly work with Photoshop, so I am new to the world of InDesign.  I put my options for the Calendar Wizard script, it goes through the motions, making the calendar and then shows my finished product.  The problem is that it lists the year alongside each month: may 2012 June 2012, etc, and I need to remove '2012' of each of them.  I know that the font styles updates the entire calendar when they are applied, so I hope that it works in a similar way.  I guess it is a very simple task if you are familiar with the program, haha!

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    It sounds more like you ask how to delete 2012 of several pages, and not how to change the script to not put 2012 in all first. If I'm wrong about this, you may want to ask on the Forum script.

    An easy way to remove 2012 is to use find/replace. If you are looking for 2012 and do not fill the field exchange, she will replace 2012 with nothing. In the Find/Replace window, there is a field that will allow you to search for the location of the cursor to the end of the current history, the history, the stories in the document or all open documents. If you set it to the Document, you can use the search button to find the first instance, and if you want to remove it, you can hit replace them, replace/find (what will change and find the next instance), or change everything. I would replace/find, in case you have 2012 on another part of the calendar that you want to keep. You can also have it search the text only when it has a particular paragraph or a character style and put in place the same or a different paragraph or character style. To do this, click in the boxes of Format change or find. To clear out them, hit the small icon of the Recycle Bin next to the field.
