Rearranging and Deleting Items on the Desktop

After you have installed several programs and created shortcuts to put the programs, folders, and files you use most often at your fingertips, your desktop might start to get pretty messy. To cope with the clutter, some people like to line up their icons and shortcuts in regimented rows, some like to arrange them as a sort of frame around the perimeter of their screen, and others like to group them by type in various discrete locations. You can organize your icons and shortcuts manually, or if you are happy with simple arrangements, you can have Windows Vista arrange them for you.

In this exercise, you will rearrange the items on your desktop, and then delete a shortcut from your desktop.
