Sorry, didn't work. Still need help.
Mine is the latest version of Fences downloaded this after setting up my new DELL XPS desktop with Windows 11 a day or two ago. Page says only "Adjust label text color" which I did but that is only the name I give the particular Fence which is white. Appears there is no way to fix the Shortcuts as again today they started out blue then with a restart became black. Seems like an inherent Stardock defect for WIN 11. I still have my old XPS as well as an Inspiron. Both have fences and the shortcuts on both are, and always have been, white.
The problem with black or even the blue text for the icons is with a background image. I have a typical background of Swiss Alps, village, tree, sky. The icon text completely disappears into any dark portions of the screen image. In the past I never had a problem with the white text. Note that on Stardock's Fences page, the advertised text in the Fence(s) is white.
