Unwanted Desktop Icon

I programed, using a CD Rom, Pagis Pro 3.0 Scanning Suite.  It's not a bad program and it comes with Textbridge 9.0.  The only thing that I don't like is that when I programed it into my computer it added a Pagis Inbox Icon on my desktop.  I don't want it there.  I want it gone but I do not want to uninstall Pagis Scanning Suite just to get rid of it.  This Pagis Inbox is in C\Programs and is also in the Start\Programs.  So I do not need it on my Desktop.

How do I get rid of the Pagis Inbox Icon on my Desktop?  If I right click it, it does not have a delete function.  If I try and move it into a folder, I get a message saying that I can not move it there. Do I want to add a shortcut there?

Try manual fix. Go to My Computer & click on C drive then windows folder then desktop folder.
Right-click offender then either delete (if available) or cut & paste elsewhere.

This is an icon without the shortcut sign in the bottom left of the icon ?

The only way is to check your registry.
Click Start / Run / regedit
Type CTRL-F to find the name of the icon

Anyway when you selected the icon have you tried to press th DEL key ?

Supports up to 4K resolution!

The VS192 2-Port 4K DisplayPort Splitter is perfect for anyone who needs to send one source of DisplayPort high definition video to two or four DisplayPort displays. The VS192 can split and also expand DisplayPort audio/video signal on two or four DisplayPort monitors.

If you have tweakui, you can try the desktop tab also

there may also be a configuration tab/button in the program to remove it from your desktop also

Go to start  |  run   and type regedit
check here for reference to it:
HKEY_local_machine\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\desktop\namespace\
Expand the namespace key and one at a time select the subkeys (the CLSIDs)
For each CLSID look at the contents of the right pane to see what icon is associated with it.
Then choose file | export and save it to a backup directory.
Then right click it and choose delete.  
Now close out of regedit and reboot your computer.

This was a easy way of deleting that Icon.  I don't know why I did not think of it. Ha

Thanks for your help.
