How to: Make your desktop icons transparent

It’s up to you to decide which way you like them, but I personally find the default icons that have the awful blue drop shadow very annoying, as it looks like they are all selected.

To remove the drop shadow:

1. Go to: Start > Control panel > Performance and Maintenance > Adjust Visual Effects

2. Uncheck the box for use drop shadows for icon labels on the desktop which is right near the bottom.
