Hey just follow the following steps...

Desktop Icons - Add or Remove

1) Go to the desktop and open personaliation option by right clicking in the empty space of desktop.
2) Then in that go to 'Change desktop icons' tab located at upper left panel.
3) By clicking on it, it will redirect you to another window, in that check\uncheck icons which you wan\din't want.
4) Press apply and then ok.

Hope that this would be helpful to you.

Hiding only certain icons on desktop?
I know you can hide all desktop icons, but is there a way to hide only certain icons? I have some icons that represent macros along with shortcuts but I don't want those to cluster my desktop.
