    Does anyone know how to make your icons like this http://www.johnalder.com/new/desktop.jpg

    without using a program like D-Color XP? I've heard that someone post a registry hack for it a couple years on this forum and wondered if anyone knew how to do it.

    Looks like he just set small icons and aligned everything on a wallpaper. Other than that, you would need a program like winblinds or something like that (I don't recommend them)

    A long way of doing that would be to create an html desktop using either resized transparent background icons or making the background of the resized icon the same color as the image you're laying it over (blue in the case of the screenshot you posted).

    That's actually not a bad idea. Too bad I despise icons on my desktop. :hs:
