Windows 10: Don't create desktop display icon Solved

    Don't create desktop display icon

    Desktop Icon
    My desktop display gets cluttered with .txt file icons.
    Is there a way to put a .txt file in the desktop folder and not create a monitor display icon for it?
    It would be accessible from File Explorer via the desktop folder.

    Hi, why use the desktop? Especially if you don't want to see anything there?

    The desktop is just a folder. Suggest you put the files into another folder... and put a shortcut to the folder on the desktop or in your start menu...

    That's your only solution as far as I know. The Desktop is just a folder, as dalchina explained, so anything visible in it, will be visible however you view the folder.
