Hello Zaty Pak,

You could right click on the desktop, click on View, and uncheck Show desktop icons to hide them.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

I see. Thanks!

Oh, I got one more question..

Um, how to change the icons? I've got full icons package but I don't know how to change it.

Thanks in advanced

You're most welcome Zaty Pak.

That would be best asked in another New Thread in Customization instead to get the best help on it.
