Explorer 5

When I installed the new explorer 5 beta it changed my desktop just slightly.  Down at the bottom of my desktop I have alot of program icons resting on the taskbar for fast launching.  I have so many that the scrollbar used to scroll sideways to get to all of the other icons.  Now that i put on this new explorer instead of the taskbar scrolling the [extra] icons are now on a little square launch pad !  I can delete icons that are on the taskbar, but the extra ones that have now overflowed to this lauch pad are NOT deleteable!  I have a bunch of the icons that no longer link to anything do to some programs that i have removed.  Someone please help me to figure out how to remove these icons on this little launchpad...

If you want to delete these icons, they can be found in the C:\Windows\Application Data\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Quick Launch folder. Delete the shortcuts of the icons you want removed.

Hope this helps!

Have you tried right-clicking on them and select "Delete"?

I think you have that reversed......

But, no matter.  I'm glad you got what you needed.
