Quick Tip: Remove Text from Icons In Windows

Hidden Desktop Icon Text

Most icons are self explanatory and you do need a text below them to specify what the icon is for. For example, you do not need a text below the icons seen in the image on the right. You can therefore, hide the text and give your desktop a clean look.

Here’s how you can hide the icon text in Windows:

  • Right-click any icon and choose “Rename“.
  • Hold down the Alt key and type 0160 or 255 from the number keypad. Make sure that “Num Lock” is on.

That’s it! You now have an icon without any text underneath it. Similarly you can rename other icons as well.
