Right click on the desktop.
Choose properties.
Choose Effects on the top.
Then change icon to whatever you might want.

When I right click and go into properties, there is no desktop tab.
*I have Windows 98*
And is there a way to change the task bar? Like as in the style? I want to put my own task bar in.

Oh my god! Thank you!
And another question, you know where it says the name of program you have on your desktop? Mine always has a block of color behind it. Is there any way to just get rid of it? Not change the color, just get rid of it.

Another Question, is there any way to change every icon? like when you go to My Computer, is there a way to change the C Drive icon?
