Delete Desktop shortcut.



I don't have a particular problem, but I would like to know how to either replace the MSN butterfly icon which sits on my desktop with another icon or remove it and have it sit in the program manager(where you click on Start, Programs, Accessories, etc. I would appreciate any hints you may give me.

Thank You in advance,

Larry Probert.

Hi Larry,

The MSN Icon on your desk top can be removed by Right clicking on it.When you do this you will get a short menu,you will then left click on Delete Shortcut.Doing this will take it off your desk top You will also notice that you can create short cuts with the same process.

Thank You,
