    move icon from desktop
    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
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .
