    Removing desktop icons

    the icons are located in 'all users' folder somewhere (for example, i see a few shared icons in "C:\Users\Public\Desktop" )

    The only way to fix those, is to remove the icons from there, and place them on to each users desktops manually. an admin may need to do this.

    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 Weird bug, desktop background being removed by selection box, moving an icon removed... :( ).
    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?

    Remove Linux Desktop Icons

    Removing Icons

    Hi,

    Sorry. I should have said that I am using Gnome. My post related to the method for removing all desktop icons. The right click and move to trash method works for any added icons but it doesn't work for the Trash and Home folder icons which are installed as standard. (If you right click on them, you don't get a remover to trash option.)
