This isn't so much a OH GOD PLEASE HELP as it is a minor nuisance. I used the ALT + 255 trick to make no letters show on my icons on the desktop, however when I select them I still get a small dotted line around it that is annoying, anyone know if this is removable? Here is a link to a photo explaining what im trying to get rid of

Many thanks~

P.S. I don't think I could find anything on it in TweakUI, although I may have missed it.

Hi Jbone80.
Right click on desktop. Select Properties>Appearance Tab>Effects Button.
Make sure "Hide Underlined Letters for Keyboard Navigation until I press the alt key" is selected.
