If you make your own shortcut to display on the desktop then you should have no worries.

A couple things.
1) you can't create a shortcut for Libraries
2) the default one that is there, I have no idea how to remove it...

Hello Murty,

Sure you can create shortcuts of libraries to the desktop, then right click on them to rename them.

I mean the actual 'Libraries' folder itself. Not the folders inside the library

Thanks!
So how do I get rid of the Libraries folder that is still there by default?

You say it's there by default, but I have never had it on my desktop by default, I know Shawn made a tutorial to have it show on your desktop but I'm sure it's hidden by default.

That's weird then (also just worked out how to create a libraries shortcut anyway, can't believe I missed it again!). I won't worry about it, its not a big deal at all. When I upgrade to 7600, then i'll see if its still there.

(I would rep you grim, but I've repped you too much lately apparently)
