How to remove colour desktop icons ?

These few days, my desktop suffered from a strange problem. All my desktop icons are coloured in blue! Well, certainly not only being an eyesore, these blue-coloured desktop icons irritate me a tad.

Searching on the internet, I tried some of the tips dished out, but none of them work. Luckily, I managed to find some help. Follow the steps below to solve your coloured desktop icons problems too:

Right-click on your desktop and select:

Properties > Desktop > Customize Desktop > Web (tab)

and uncheck "Lock Desktop Items", click OK and APPLY.

Also, check this setting:

Right-click MY COMPUTER and select:

Properties > Advanced > Performance settings >

Visual Effects, place a check next to "Use Drop Shadows

for Icon Labels on the Desktop", then click "apply".
