Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Desktop is the interface of
Windows, which contain the icons, taskbar etc. that allow the user to
interact with the computer to perform different operations. Usually the
picture of icon represents its purpose so if you want your desktop
looking very clean then you can remove the title under the desktop
icons. May be you are thinking it is so easy, just go to rename option
and set blank name or single spacebar entry but the problem is this,
windows will not allow you to set blank name or name with single
spacebar entry. Here interesting thing is this; window will allow you to
use the ASCII code for a space, which is 0160.
First clear all the text from that icon
Now type the ASCII code, simply hold the Alt key, type the number 0160 from the number pad and release the Alt key then press Enter button to finish the process.
But if you want to remove the text of multiple icons, then repeat the above process with adding one extra ASCII code for second icon, (for example for second icon you type the 0160 twice and for third icon type 0160 three times with Alt key and so on).
