    Help with icons on user accounts Windows 7

    Ive set up a account for my daughter on Windows 7 but all my desktop icons now appear on here page, if i delete them they also delete mine !

    Any idea how to delete them from her page and not mine ?

    Thanks

    im not 100% sure how to do it, my brother did explain a while back but i can't remember now.

    I think you need to delete the icons you don't want shared from the public desktop folder, and copy them only to the user's account desktop that you want them to show in.

    i think the folder is c:\users\public

    i would make a copy of any files you delete before trying this tho, just cause im not 100% sure which folder it is.

    Sometimes when you install a program it installs the links in a folder that all accounts can see. You need to cut and paste the links to your desktop.
