unwanted icons on desktop

I have two icons on my desktop that I can't get rid of. I went to "programs" add/remove and couldn't locate the programs with the same names under the icons.

Not real computer savy here. Can anyone help?


Disregard, got rid of them.

Thanks
Fran M

Be more specific, what are the icons?

Removing the program via Add/Remove Software doesn't always remove the icons.

Right click the icon, then choose Delete.

Agreed, you are only deleting shortcuts.

Unless you are trying to get rid of the trash can this will work and there are windows tweaks that will allow you to remove even it from the desktop.
