Hi Kian,

Unwanted desktop icons can clutter your desktop and slow system performance.
To remove unwanted desktop icons, perform the following steps:
  1. Click Start > Control Panel > Appearances and Themes > Display. The Display Properties dialog box displays.
  2. Select the Desktop folder tab, then click the Customize Desktop button.
  3. Click the Clean Desktop Now button, then click Next.
  4. A list of icons displays. Select the shortcuts that you want to remove. Click to clear the corresponding check box for any icons that you want to keep. Click Next, then Next again to confirm your deletions.
I hope this helps.
