Changing font colour on desktop

Hi all.
I almost solved all my problems with windows 7, but this i think is the last one. I got a white picture on my desktop, but the font under my icons is also white, so i almost cant read what it says, so i want to turn it black. How do i change the colour?
Thanks in advance (dunno if it's called that in english)

If I understand your question correctly, right click on desktop, click on personalize and then click change desktop or color.

Doesn't change the "Font Color" I think that is what I am reading boy wants. That changes the window color. Also that is a good question. How do you change the color of the desktop fonts??
