Q: Window 7: Can I change the font of the desktop icons ?

Hi,

I have customized the desktop in light blue color. I find that the font for the various program icons are in light color and have shadow behind it. The fonts do not stand out well. May I know how to change the font to darker color and without shadow ?

Thanks
