Windows 7: Hover state of desktop icons...

08 Jan 2012   #1

Windows 7 - Home Premimum (64bit) OEM
Hover state of desktop icons...

I've searched high and low for an answer on Google, but can't seem to find one. I don't think there's anything you can do about it, but here it goes...

So on your XP desktop, when you hover over your desktop icons with your mouse, they don't light up. On 7, when you mouseover your desktop icons, a light blue box shows up around the icons indicating that you're over it.

How on this huge planet of ours do you disable that hover effect? It's annoying! Any help on this issue would be super swell

There are some images that will need to be edited in the aero.msstyles.
If you are using the default aero theme I can change that for you.
If you are using a custom theme you will need to ask the
theme maker. It's not cool to change someone else work.
This will make it a custom theme so you will need to do 1 of these 2 ways of Enabling custom themes for it to work.
Enabling Custom Themes - Windows 7
Theme - How to Apply Custom Themes
If you would like me to do it all so I need is a name that you would like to call the theme and I will do it and post it here for you and help you install it.
