  1. Desktop Icons Same for Multiple Accounts


    Hi,


    I have created two accounts, one administrator and one standard account, on my Windows.


    The problem I'm facing is that one account is able to access desktop for the other. I don't want to see the other account's desktop stuff and vice versa. How can i do that? I also want both desktops to be synced to one drive. Is that possible


    Please help.


    Cheers,

    Priyesh

    :)

  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.

  3. Desktop Icons Won't Stay Put

    Hi Laurie,

    As per the issue description I understand that you are facing issues with desktop icons.

    I suggest you try the following step in order to arrange the icons.

    • Right click on the desktop.
    • Click on view
    • Check the option auto arrange icons.
    Let us know if this helps.

    Thanks.

    Removing desktop icons

    I want to remove some Icons from my desktop, but Vista asks for Admin permission to continue (I'm not an admin *Frown Desktop Icons Same for Multiple Accounts :( ).
    It seems that whenever I delete one of these icons from my desktop, it is also removed from all the other user accounts. For example, I deleted the Skype icon from my desktop, and it was then removed from everyone elses as well.
    How can I delete icons from my desktop only, without affecting anyone elses?
