  • well it is simple


    Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT.  Navigate to the following Registry brach:


    The Desktop Icons are located in the sub keys as follows:

    My Network Places: {208D2C60-3AEA-1069-A2D7-08002B30309D}
     My Computer: {20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}
     My Documents: {450D8FBA-AD25-11D0-98A8-0800361B1103}
     Recycle Bin:{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}
     Default IE Icon: {871C5380-42A0-1069-A2EA-08002B30309D}

    Double click the Default value in the above keys and enter the text you desire.  Right click on the Desktop and select Refresh to see the changes. 

    To undo the changes, just right click on the Default value and select Delete.  Refresh the Desktop to see that things are back to normal.
