    1. Select the icon from which you want to remove text
    2. Press F2 to rename

    3. Press Alt + 255 (Enable Num Lock if youíre working on a laptop.) This will replace the text with a space much like putting for HTML (one thing you canít do with the spacebar).
    4. Hit Enter or click on the icon.

    5. To make other iconsí text labels disappear, you must add another space. Thus, for the second icon you press Alt + 255 + 255.

    For other icons, you must do the same Alt + 255 + 255 + 255 so forth and so on until you have finished all the icons on your desktop that you want the text taken away from.

    I hope this helps you out.

    Have fun!
