Desktop Icons without text

Maybe this is a stupid question but How do you make icons without the text under it, so its just an icon?

Thanks on Advance - Sergio

This doesn't work for me

Whenever I type in the 255, it comes up with an exclamation point! I'm running Windows 7 RC, 64-bit. Any ideas?
Edit: Yes, I am using the numpad.

Right click the folder that you want to rename and then Press Alt+160 and press enter. For another icon, press Alt+160 twice. For the 3rd, you got the answer.

Strange, Alt+33 should be for the ! character. Did you press and hold the Alt key, or have NumLock turned on?

How do I make the text in Desktop icons smoother?
This is probably what bothers me most about Windows 7. Unlike Windows XP, the text on desktop icon looks "ugly" (on bright backgrounds). Is there a way of having the desktop icon text look exactly like Windows XP? http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/2874/smoother.jpg
