Removing the text below an icon on your desktop has been a classic Windows tweak for years. In Windows Vista, the same old tweak works.
- Right click on the icon and select Rename.
- Then hold down the ALT key and type in 255 on your right keypad. If you are on a laptop turn on numlock and use the K and I keys to enter in 255. This is the code for a space.
- Hit Enter when you are done.
If you want to remove the text from multiple icons then make sure that you do ALT + 255 a different number of times for each icon.
