    Further customizations


    How do I remove the desktop.ini and Thumbs.db files that appear on the desktop?

    Also, I don't use OneDrive, so how do I delete the OneDrive icon from the desktop (there is no option for that on right-click)?

    Thanks.

    In case anyone wants to know, I figured out how to do some of this.

    Removing desktop.ini and Thumbs.db files from the desktop calls for hiding them via View > Options > View, and then checking "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)."

    And for OneDrive, there are these excellent resources:
