What’s on Your Desktop?
Posted By On March 29, 2005 @ 3:23 PM In Desktop Enhancement | Comments Disabled
When I got my new computer it didn’t have a “My Computer” icon on the desktop. Maybe the manufacturer didn’t want the average person messing around in there, but how else could I access the CD drives and such? Well, fortunately it was an easy fix.
Not only did I find “My Computer” there, but there were other things that could be turned on and off. Let’s take a look at this area together…
Right-click the desktop and choose “Properties”. Click the “Desktop” tab then the “Customize Desktop” button.
Under the “General” tab you’ll find check boxes for different desktop items: My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places, and Internet Explorer.
Check the ones you want and uncheck what you don’t. Click OK.
There you have it—your desktop, your way.
