    Desktop icon lag

    It lags whenever I use the drag box to move icons or just click the icons and move them. Also when hovering my mouse over the icons it takes a couple seconds to even register it. Why would this be happening on a system that is a decent gaming pc when on my old crappy laptop this doesn’t happen ?

  2. Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    I am not sure whether this will work (Ubuntu does not have icons like that on the desktop by default), but I suggest opening the trash bin and sweeping the icons into the window showing the trash bin.
