Windows 7: Removing "Desktop" option from Alt+Tab

Removing "Desktop" option from Alt+Tab

Hi all!

Is there a way to remove the "Desktop" option from Alt+Tab? I don't want a replacement application. I just want the "Desktop" option to be gone.

Thanks!

Read the thread, but I think post 10 did the trick

That thread is about removing the Alt+Tab functionality altogether. I just want to get rid of the "Desktop" option.

Sorry, but that is not possible, at least not without a major rewrite/recode of Explorer (not to be confused with Internet Explorer).

Oh well... It's just that the icon makes no sense there and there's not one but TWO keyboard shortcuts for reaching the desktop already, and I'm not even talking about the Aero effects that can display the desktop as well. Sigh...
