    Hi, in Windows XP, can you change the font color for the letters under
    the icons on the desktop? I looked in Control Panel, under Display,
    but could not find an option for this.

    Thank you!

    Sure....

    Right click on your desktop
    Select properties
    Click on the tab that says "Appearance"
    Then in the lower right hand corner you will see a box that says "Advanced"
    Click on that please
    Then change the drop down box that says "Desktop" to "Icon"
    Then you can select the font, color, and size for the captions under the
    icons. Hope that helps.
