Unused Desktop Icons Group policy

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
All right, I am annoyed.

It's time to get rid of that little flag in the system tray that says, "There are unused icons on your desktop". Then, when you click on it, the tool wants to delete every icon on your desktop.

Enough already!!! I will remove desktop Icons when I feel the need. And quit deleting the icons that we do use.

A group policy to quell the overwhelming desire to beat my monitor with the keyboard every time I see that flag would be nice.

Anyone know off the top of their head? Thanks in advance for the assistance.
