In Windows XP Home, right click on an empty part of the desktop, then arrange icons and remove the tick from show desktop items but if you want to see your desktop items right click on an empty part of the toolbar, then toolbars then put a tick against desktop, then you can see the desktop item by clicking on the two little arrows. Hope it works in Pro. Post back one way or the other
Thanks SANTOS, it was in the 1st link about activating active desktop, which isn't in the main desktop properties dialog. You have to go to foler options in control panel and enable web page desktop top or something.
Anyway, it's not going to work here as they've blocked that option. I could edit the registry, but it's a work PC so i don't want to risk it.
Thanks anyway guys, guess i'll have to live with deskop clutter after all.
