I followed some advice on an old post.
I right clicked on my desktop photo. The Display Properties box opened up. I clicked on the Desktop Tab. Then I clicked on the Customize Desktop Button. Then I clicked on the Web Tab. Then I saw there was only one item listed in the center box of that window. The title in that bax even had the word Transparent in it. I un-clicked that box. I clicked Apply and OK. Nothing Happened. I went back in and un-clicked Lock Desktop Items. I clicked Apply and OK and my Desktop Icon boxes became Transparent. I went back in and tried re-clicking the Lock Desk Top Items, and the Transparent boxes became a solid color again. So both of these items need to be un-clicked.
So anyhow, I do have my Transparent boxes again. I hope I don't need to have that Lock feature on for my Desktop for some other reason???
Thanks for your advice and help. I first tried clicking on My Computer to make sure that "Use Drop Shadows for Icon Labels on the Desktop" was check, and it already was checked.
