Text of desktop icons is not readable with a dark or light background picture

Version 2

    Problem

    The text of desktop icons is not readable when a specific background picture is set. The text color is not striking against the background color of the picture.

     

     

    Cause

    In Microsoft Windows 8 or higher may overrule desktop colors if a background picture is set.

    The text color configuration in Ivanti Workspace Control for Microsoft Windows 8 or higher is being overruled by the Operating System calculation of the text color based on the color of the background picture.

     

     

    Solution

    • Go to Ivanti Workspace Control > Composition > Desktop > Background > Settings > Default desktop colors.
    • Set white text and a black background color, or black text and a white background color.

     

    Note: Configuring only the text color is not sufficient. The calculation of the text color can only be influenced by setting the background color.
