Remove icons from the desktop

You can remove the default icons ("My Device" and "Recycle Bin") on the desktop.

To do this, remove the registry keys:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Explorer\Desktop]

On some BSP releases, this deleteion of keys does not work properly, and the do automatically reappear after a reboot.
In this case, rename the keys instead of deleting them:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Explorer\Desktop]
"x{000214A0-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"="My Device"
"x{000214A1-0000-0000-C000-000000000046}"="Recycle Bin"

You must save the registry.
