How do I remove shortcut icons from the desktop, without deleting the related program ? Running W98SE.

Right click on the icon and click remove. It will tell you the program is not being removed.

Right click, and select delete, this will delete the shortcut.

You should not have too many on your desktopas it slows windows down a little.

The program can be accessed by the Start menu, shotcuts are simply shortcuts. So your programs remain there,

remove = delete
