    Windows 10 Upgrade icon on desktop. Remove?

    I manually upgraded to the W10 anniversary upgrade. Since then I have a "Windows10 Upgrade" shortcut icon on my desktop from the file "Windows10UpgraderApp.exe" in the C:\Windows10Upgrade folder.

    Now that the upgrade is all done and history, do I still need this icon or even the C:\Windows10Upgrade folder on my pc?

    You can delete them :)

    Note that 10 days after you upgrade your W10, the backup windows.old folder and the W10 installation files will automatically be deleted.

    Thank you both for replying. It's over 10 days and they haven't been deleted, probably because some customizations I made (including stopping telemetry). So I'll make an image backup and delete them.
