Hi Everyone

I was just wondering if there is a way to remove the rectangle around desktop icons, whithin the aero theme?

Take a look at this icon. You can see the box around the icon when it's highlighted:

Now, take a look at the same icon with the classic theme enabled, no box around the icon:

My question is basically if there is a way to remove the rectangle without changing to classic mode?

Hope you understand. Sorry for my english!

Thanks in advance
