    I have seen on many of those "show your desktop" etc threads that people still dont get it
    Here are some basic tips

    Tip 1. How to Delete a File
    many of u seem to be keeptutiaholics - get rid of it

    mark file
    then
    a.press keyboard button "Delete"
    b.right clik, then clik delete

    when done - right clik recycle bin - clik "empty recycle bin"

    Tip 2. How move an icon \ File on your desktop
    On your desktop, put your cursor over the icon \ file,
    left mouse clik and hold it down
    move it slowly to right left
    when you have located the desirable location
    let go of the left mouse clik

    All Tips Welcome

    Remove Windows Messenger

    This is a Visual Basic Script file which will remove Windows® Messenger from Windows® XP. It will also adjust your System Registry to prevent a long delay when opening Outlook Express when Windows Messenger is removed or disabled.

    To use: Download the xp_messenger_remove.vbs file and save it to your hard drive. Close Windows Messenger if its open, or active in your System Tray. Double-click the xp_messenger_remove.vbs file. You will be prompted that Messenger must be closed to continue. Click Yes. This script makes the same changes as the manual procedure, below.

    If you prefer to remove Windows Messenger manually, click Start, Run and enter the following command:

    RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %windir%\inf\msmsgs.inf,BLC.Remove

    Note: This will prevent a long delay when opening Outlook Express if you have the Contacts pane enabled. To prevent this, click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express

    Right click in the right pane and select New, Dword value. Give it the name Hide Messenger Double click this new entry and set the value to 2.

    1. When you use mouse and keep moving it until the edge of the tabel,
    DONT PANICK!!!
    You can lift it up and move it where you have more free space.



    2.Permanently Delete.
    Highlight the file or folder, hold Shift and hit Delete.
    It will be gone without going through Trashcan and
    colllecting 2000$.

    3. Always tell the Truth when posting in the Lounge,
    and if possible, be as Serious as can be.

    Spoiler: Show
