Hi! I recently installed Google Earth and have it in my applications folder as well as on my dock.

Whenever I open up Google Earth, an icon for it shows up on my desktop. It's like a white box and just says "Google Earth" underneath it. It won't go away after I close Google Earth either.

I dragged this to my trashcan but it reappears whenever I open Google Earth from the dock. Is there a way to get rid of this permanently? I like to have my desktop as clear as possble!

QUOTE Thanks
