Windows 7: Duplicate icons


22 Sep 2011   #1

Duplicate icons

I have desktop, libraries,pictures, control panel, etc on the bottom right hand corner where I have desktop written. I also have those same icons when I press the start button. How do I get rid of the icons on the right. None of them are even on the desktop even though they say they are.
I don't know if I am making myself clear. I don't know how to take screenshots, so cant send a pic.
Thanks.

you can use the Snipping Tool to make a screen shot of your screen. it should be in your start menu list.

okay, I got rid of the desktop icons, but they are still on the right hand side and you get there by clicking the arrow. I could not get a screen picture. I tried to delete those icons from that list, but they ask if I want to delete them and I say yes, but they don't go away. Any ideas?

if your talking about that up arrow thay are apps that are running on your system from bootup.
you can goto (Control Panel\Administrative Tools ) then System Configuration and click on startup and disable any
you feel you don't need.

Right click on the taskbar, click on toolbars, uncheck desktop.

If indeed that`s what your referring to.

I want the icons that are on my desktop, but there were additional icons that were not on my desktop like libraries, computer, control panel, etc. Those are the ones I want to get rid of, not all of them. Thanks

I can't figure out how to get a screenshot of a list of programs on the right hand side. I know how to get a screenshot but it won't work on this. I can't copy and paste either. Do you know where I am talking about where the icons are?
