Change Desktop Background Color

Aug 1, 2005

I know this is simple but it's driving me nuts that I cannot fix it. The Help desk just updated my computer and now there are boxes surrounding the names of the desktop icons. I do not want these boxes. When I change the desktop color, it changes the color of these boxes. How do I fix this so there is no box and it is clear with just the names. I can't stand looking at this!

Command Prompt Color Comes Black Background And Grayish-white Text

Oct 21, 2007

When I open command prompt (DOS) it has the colors black background and grayish-white text, which is the default color. But when I type the command 'start', it opens a new window with blue text and green background.I think it does this because I download the program Replacer, which runs in DOS and makes the screen those colors. I also think the Replacer program did something to the system Path which modifies DOS to make it those colors when running a new window.

Need To Change Output To Printers Back To B/W & Color

Aug 3, 2007

I recently changed the overall output to printers from B/W + color to only B/W to help on save a little cost on inks. Now I need to print with color and I can't find out how to get it turned back on. Where I changed it was before the printers so the each printer's properties won't let me change it. I should have wrote it down and soon will if I get a resolution here. The ink bars on the printing status blocks only show black ink so I know the command is set before them. Any help someone may give would be greatly appreciated.

Change Log On Background Color - Showing Dark Wallpaper

Aug 12, 2002

1. Click Start > click Run > type regedit > and click OK.2. Navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_USERSDEFAULTControl PanelColors 3. In the details pane (right-side), double-click the Background string value item. 4. Change the value to a 3 number RGB value, and then click OK . You have now changed the logon background color.NOTE: I went looking for this registry key after using the "Change the Logon BackGround" tweak, and that bright XP blue color kept showing before the OS had a chance to load my dark wallpaper. This way if you choose a color close to the wallpaper shown, the load of the wallpaper is less noticeable.

I ran into the same problem a poster here did with being booted out when I signed on. I kept getting the blue screen indicating a stop error. I worked for hours with MS and believe it was an ordeal because in the end I diagnosed and fixed the problem which had to do with disk scanning. Since then my settings are different and I have had to work really hard but I can't seem to get the font and font size correctly in my emails PLUS they are all my messages are now BOLDED.

Can't Change Font Size In Web Pages

Nov 8, 2006

I posted about this a few hours ago in XP forum but I can't find it now. When I click on it in my profile I'm taken to a page in the Feedback forum but it doesn't seem to be their either.?At most sites I cannot changing the font size. I have tried using Ctrl > scroll wheel and View > Text size But the text does not change. When I use Ctrl > scroll wheel the View > Text size setting does change. When I attempt to change font size the scroll bar moves moves tiny bit as though the font size was [going] to change.I am able to change the font size on very few sites. On the CNET site the font is much smaller than others. In fact it is so small I can just barely make it out with my reading glasses. But after a moment I have to stop as my eyes start hurting bad.I am able to change font size in Word and such. The font size in this Message body box is normal but the font size in the Subject title box is tiny.I am using XP Home SP2 and IE6. No viruses, ad/spy ware, etc.I would appreciate any help to fix and/or understand what may have caused this problem. If anyone responds please send it in email to me via my profile as I probably won't be able to make it out in the forum.

Desktop With No Toolbar, Or Icons

Jan 20, 2005

Ok, Im DESPRATE for help right now, and im going to explain my whole situation which is grim
I have a SONY VAIO 2.53 GHZ P4 Processor, 512 RAM, Windows XP pro (not so valid edition) 2 year old Comp. And I have 2 hard drives both 200GB, C: (windows and programs) D: video editing files...

I have a project to turn in TOMORROW... I could get in Big trouble and Fail a class if i dont get this done TONIGHT

SITUATION:

Last Night I noticed when I was editing that some of my avi exports were all distorted and fragmented... So i figured "I havent EVER ran defrag (stupid me) on this hard drive maybe I should defrag it" So I looked into a defrag program called "diskeeper" I defragged C: (windows drive) and attempted to defrag D:.... I came to my comp and discovered an error that just said failure with the drive or something... After that I could not access (D I restarted, diskcheck did not work, and I dont want to do system restore... I posted on another websites forum and someone said I probably went over the 137GB limit... I think when I went over the 137GB limit, it possibly overflowed over some kind of boot files or something that lets windows read the disk i dont know (not that techincal with computers)So i looked into that, and I have an ATA card... and Windows NO service pack XP pro... Ive heard things about having a 48 bit bios or something... And after installing WINDOWS XP SP1... I try to get on my computer and i load windows

No Desktop Icons Or Toolbar

System running fine now save for one thing -- my desktop page is a complete blank. It takes ages to load and then I see nothing but the desktop picture. No icons, no McAfee boot, and no toolbar. Everything has to be run from the task manager. Recently my lady, who uses the other desktop, doesn't even have a desktop picture -- it just comes up blue. She thinks she once saw a message about lack of memory.

Desktop Toolbar Items Keep Rearranging Themselves

May 8, 2007

I like a clean desktop so I choose to hide my desktop icons and use a desktop toolbar. I arrange items on the toolbar with the ones I use most at the bottom. Since last Friday, the items on the toolbar keep rearranging themselves whenever I shutdown and restart the computer. I have looked every where I know to look and I cannot find a solution. I've tried a System Restore but I get a message that the system cannot be restored to a previous time. Could there have been a Windows Update that is causing this and if so, how can I get it back the way it was?
