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...

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

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!

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

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