Does anyone know how to get rid of the text drop shadow from files and folders on the Mac desktop?
I would prefer a subtle shadow with an offset of 1 pixel.
If you know of a hack to get rid of the drop shadow completely, please share!
I don't think it exists as a setting. You could go around the problem by using a black or dark background.
You can experiment with modifying system font settings using the free utility TinkerTool. Note that with the Fonts panel open in Tinkertool, you can specify font shadow settings.
I don't know what results you might achieve, since the Mac OS prevents you from over-riding certain settings.
You can use TinkerTool to reset any settings you change to the system default.
