Why would you wish to destroy such pristine waters by pushing Ganda into it?
Even more so by having Commodus jump after him?
:)
i still have the ban button with me 88)
pfftt sorry, but WB is better.  it has transparency, which something that patched theme.dll can never reach at that level. i notice no difference in performance between the 2.  plus, your way requires the Themes service to be running, wheras WB don't (except it loads a driver). i've used both to know this.
not to mention the dll patch contains a trojan  88)

Ganda, check the index and look for (recycle bin) in XP help & support center and see removing & restoring desktop icons and also you can either create specifically named containers to contain certain shortcuts, directories, files, etc, etc...or you can create the shortcuts, directories, files, etc, etc... directly onto Sideslides' workspace without the use of containers or you can even combine both on the workspace, it's your call, see the earlier post of my desktop to Commodus, you can see that I still left certain things visible on mine, recycle bin, clock, calendar, but I could've removed or hid everthing if I wanted...

Commodus, combine quick launch bar as Soya said & Sideslide it's only 15 k memory usage but so powerful & configurable, go for it! BTW Don't take the cliff thing to heart & for gods sake stop trying to save Ganda, a mermaid can swim you know ^_^ ^_^ ^_^

As Xman stated, you can add more than 4.  first, you need to unlock the task bar.  Then drag the border/edge.

What happend Ganda ? Why are you so sad ?  :-\
You didn't perform CPR correctly on him.

who hacked my account  >:(
Ok, i've installed sideslider for the third times (on my laptop this time). i think i'll remove it again  (:TNG)
sideslider is great to place shortcuts, but i use my desktop to place some important files (real files,not shortcut) so i can remember it (yeah, maybe i can put the file into sideslider later,but that's not efficient)
using desktopX, i can "hide" the desktop shortcut into a folder.
pic #1 (see the ugly icon on bottom left)
pic #2 (the desktop shortcut)

edit: more question : what program do you use to "skin"/change/customize your desktop icons?  (:NRD)
