Hey folks,

I had the desktop font background colour set to match my wallpaper until I upgraded to OS 9.1. Now, no matter what I try, it seems that I cannot adjust the value for the background font colour in any way. Any ideas?

From what OS did you upgrade? Since OS 8.5 the backgrounds have been translucent. Third party control panel that allowed this?

There's a control panel called OpColourLight that lets you change the desktop font/background color. You can get it at resexcellence.com. The settings aren't directly changeable, but you can get in there with Resedit and pick the colors you want.
