Icons taking up too much space on your desktop? Then have no fear, an option is here! To hide icons from your desktop, right-click the desktop, point to "View", and then click to uncheck "Show desktop icons". To see them again, right-click the desktop, point to "View", and then click to check "Show desktop icons". TIP: As always, you can pin an icon from the desktop to the taskbar. Or, you can right-click the taskbar, point to "Toolbars", and then click to check "Desktop". The desktop toolbar on the taskbar shows you icons.

Should I post the Microsoft Edge Dev change log every week?
Share your opinion! In the meantime, here's today's one: Hello Insiders! Today we’re releasing build 89.0.723.0 to the Dev channel.

Added a website permission to Cookies and Site Data for pre-loading websites. Added an option to have downloaded PDFs open in the default PDF reader instead of Edge. Added keyboard shortcut information to the Share, Copy, and Paste Settings page. Enabled work from Chromium to reduce battery usage by background tabs. Enabled support for management policies from Chromium for Printing Allowed Background Graphics Modes and Printing Background Graphics Default. Improved reliability: Fixed an issue where Edge doesn’t start and instead gives an error that the “side by side configuration is invalid”. Fixed a crash on launch on Linux. Fixed a crash on shutdown when the browser is closed quickly after creating a new tab. Fixed a crash during shutdown. Fixed a crash when using vertical tabs. Fixed an issue where re-opening an IE mode tab that was previously closed sometimes crashes the browser.

Fixed an issue where middle-clicking on a folder in the Favorites menu doesn’t open all its content in new tabs.

File Explorer very slow!!
When I open file explorer it scans the C: drive. When I single click a file, it scans the C: drive. If I open or modify a file (change the name) it scans the C: drive. These scans vary from 5 seconds to 20 seconds, EVERY TIME. I searched Windows defrag with the start menu search button, it brings me to optimize drives. When I run the optimizer, it completes the process in 5 seconds... but i see ZERO change in the performance of my laptop. Secondly, video media I have that used to play smoothly, suddenly plays very choppy. If it does or does not have any relation to the above problem. Thank you, Nick
Impressive Update To Microsoft Edge Appearance
Hello Windows Community, I really enjoy the New Small Transparent Icons on the home page of the Microsoft Edge Browser Version 85.0.564.44 (Official Build) (64-bit). I'm referring to the Quick Links Icons, toward the center of the page. (IMO) these new transparent Icons add a Much Cleaner Appearance to the Home screen. I sure hope this is what Microsoft has in mind for the new soon to come start menu In Windows 10. 🤔😊 What are your thoughts? Likes - Dislikes ?
