How to hide icon text

Sunday, December 07, 2008 Posted by Aman Jain

In Windows , you might probably not want to know the name of common icons. For Example, familiar icons like My computer, Internet Explorer and Recycle bin need not have text below them to know what they actually do. Most windows users are used to these icons and hence can remove the text below if not required. To do so :

1) Right click on an icon, for example “My computer”.

2) Select the “Rename“ option.

3) Make sure Num Lock is activated.

4) Now simply hold the [Alt] key while simultaneously entering the value “255” from the keypad.
