It is really easy to go back to Explorer if for some reason you don’t like Emerge. By right clicking anywhere on the desktop (i.e. the background image or area) you will get a menu. Under the Settings menu, select the Change Desktop Shell option, and from the drop list select Windows Explorer and click on Change. Reboot or logoff to restart Windows, now with Explorer as shell. If you really didn’t like Emerge Desktop, you can uninstall it now, safely. (In fact you can uninstall it in one step, just as safely: with Emerge Desktop as shell, right click on the desktop and from the menu select Start Menu, Programs, Emerge Desktop, Uninstall. After rebooting your system will be back to Explorer and all traces of Emerge Desktop will be removed.
