I've been playing with my daughter's MacBook Pro, and accidentally got placed an icon depicting a HD with the text "Macintosh HD" on her desk - how do I remove it?

This needs moving to an appropriate thread please mods.

To answer your question:
- Open Finder
- Open Preferences from the Finder menu on the Menu Bar (top left of your screen)
- On the General 'tab' you can toggle the display of disks on the desktop

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

Please use the reputation system if you think you've been helped - top right of this post

Note: Moved to appropriate forum. No technical questions of any kind are permitted in Schweb's Lounge.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
