Hey!
I would like to know if there's a way of hiding -only- desktop icons, on Windows 7 (without hiding gadgets). If I choose not to display Desktop Items, gadgets are also hidden.
:(

I have noticed this - I don't use gadgets anyway so no biggie - but potentially very annoying.

Yeah! Actually it's terrible... Because most of us dislike icons all over the desktop, yet, those of us who use gadgets are now forced to use icons....
:(
Personally, while, I deleted everything from desktop. The only things I had there were created by setups and I didn't actually use them...

The only thing you can't delete is the recycle bin, you have to right-click desktop->personalize->change desktop icons and deselect it there.
