Did you ever get this one fixed? I'd assume by either:
hiding the icons;
Stopping things from accessing your Desktop directory;
OR by
Creating a directory on the desktop for these shares, then dragging and dropping them in there;
That the problem would subdue.



Cool

Right-click the desktop, select 'Configure Desktop'. Click the 'Behaviour' icon, then remove the checkmark from 'Display devices on desktop', click OK.

Glad to know that my occasional bumps on what would seem easy questions work sometimes

Thanks for following this one up Geoff_f

Good technique MasterC - it certainly worked this time.

This is a case where the CLUE* brigade don't have an easy answer, but the desktop designers made it so simple to change it via the GUI.

Translation for newbies: Command Line User Experience; generally used to urge newbies to leave their GUI, drop to the command line, and fix their problem there.
