    Removing Desktop Icons

    I've lost where it is that I can select which desktop icons (Recycle, Network, etc.) appear (or not).

    How do I get there?

    Regards,

    Roland I may just be old and/or blind, but I don't see the "Change Desktop Icons, and I looked in both "By Category" and "Large Icons" layouts.

    Sigh...

    There we go! Thanks Browni. I wonder sometimes (pointlessly I know) why some of these changes occur...Oh well, I like wasting energy...

    My FF renders the title to the far right side, away from the left side title and author underneath
    However, I can and should read the far side before clicking merely away
