Just noticed I have friends in the "too many Desktop icons" club!
In fact, I have so many that they extend several Desktop widths off the edge of the screen, and are not easily accessible! I must manually browse to the Desktop folder, and then search for them :hysterical:
I don't. Quicker just to go to All Programs or Program Files.
Zero desktop icons here! I don't see the desktop except when the computer starts/shuts down. What I use frequently is either pinned to the taskbar or a shortcut in the desktop toolbar (in organized folders, of course). Slightly less frequently used program are pinned to the Start Menu. Otherwise, Program Files or a filed away Library Folder.
