If Ever a Wizard There Wasn't, This One Isn't it, Isn't it, Isn't
Windows XP Home and Professional

If you're like us, you know what icons you want on your desktop and which ones you don't, right? Sometimes you feel like an icon and sometimes you don't. Wasn't that a commercial? A nut? Yes, sometimes you feel like a nut and sometimes you don't. That's it. Oh, let us digress. We're completely off topic here :)

Anyway, one of the most ANNOYING features of Windows XP is the Desktop Cleanup Wizard (that's an oxymoron folks).  This wizard that isn't pops up every 60 days to cleanup your desktop for you. Most likely, if you want to clean up your desktop, you'll clean it yourself don't need a "Wizard" to do do it for you every  60 days. All the Wizard does anyway is make even more mess by storing everything it cleans up in yet another folder called "Unused Desktop Shortcuts". Makes no sense to us. Bill, are you listening?

You can disable the Desktop Cleanup Wizard and put him out of your life forever by following the simple instructions below:

Right-click an empty area of your desktop, and choose "Properties". In the menu which appears, click the "Desktop" tab, "Customize Desktop" button, and uncheck the box next to "Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days". After you click OK, the wizard that wasn't will never pester you again. If you really, really, miss him you can always run the wizard manually by clicking the "Clean Desktop Now" button from the same menu from which you disabled the wizard. Or if you decide you like seeing him every 60 days (or you like to be reminded every 60 days you're getting older) just retrace the steps above and check the box next to "Run Desktop Cleanup Wizard every 60 days".
