    Office icons

    SP SP3, MS Office 2007
    I log in at work to a network. When I take the laptop home, I log in locally. It doesn't matter where I am, every time I log in as a different user (one at work, the other at home), Office puts Word, Excel, PP, and Access icons on the desktop. I use the programs, but don't want the icons on the desktop. How can I stop it? I delete them at home, and log in several times, and they don't come back, but if I log in at work, the next time I log in at home, they are back.

    Walt,

    I would talk to your administrators at work. Looks like they have policies in effect that will automatically regenerate the icons if they are missing from your desktop.
    May the Forces of good computing be with you!
