Removing the My Documents Folder from the Desktop
The My Documents folder differs from other folders in Windows, and not
only in terms of looks. Most programs running on Windows use the My
Documents folder as a default save option, and it's set up a bit
differently than your average desktop folder. So if you want to remove
the My Documents folder from your desktop, do it the careful way:
Right-click on it and select Remove From Desktop. While the folder
itself will still exist on your computer, the desktop shortcut will be
gone. If you ever want to return it to the desktop, right-click on the
desktop and choose New, My Documents Folder On Desktop.
