Loading firesfox on my desktop put too many icons


When I put Firefox on my computer, I wanted it to be a desktop icon. Now there are a bunch of program icons i would like to remove. I have your program on my start menu, so I really don't need it on my desktop anyway.. Please tell me how to remove all those icons. The desktop icon wizard did not remove them. Thanks

When you installed Firefox, was your destination folder the desktop? If so, I would suggest you to move them into a folder into your documents or "My Computer"


If you mean that you have many Firefox icons on your desktop then you can simply drag them to the "Recycle Bin"

Thank You!
