Dear knowledgeable ones,
wheneverI download software as well as the active ikon I have the one used to download on my desktop,does that make sense?Anyway if I try to delete it I receive a warning that the software will be inoperative.
How do I remove & prevent these ikons being visible,I dont think they are necessary.
Thanks in advance for your time

If you right click on them and check the Properties, look at the 'General' Tab, if the Type of File field says 'shortcut, there should be absolutely no reason why you can't delete it. I do with all mine.

What windows OS are you using? Winxp has it on way of doing it.(remove unused desktop icons)

Any os you can create new folder on desktop.Name it and drag your Icon to there for later use.
