Which is to click on the start button, type desktop, press enter and delete it from that view?
And since we can re-create that folder is it ever truly gone permanently?
In closing, no OS mentioned so this won't apply to most Apple and other OSes.
I have this folder that I try to delete(nothing in it). when I click on the delete tab i get a message "could not find this item" but it's right there on my desktop. is there a way to remove it permanently from my computer.
