If like me your desktop is full of icons/shortcuts to programmes because you can't be arsed to search for them, then this may help. It is called stardock/object dock and you can reach all your programmes from it and it takes up very little space. It will look like this below, you can position it anywhere on your desktop



It is freeware, if anyone wants to try it I will help them with some of the settings, if they get stuck, just pm me or email me.
You will find it here..

If you need to remove anything from the dock you can just drag it off. I put all my desktop icons in a folder in My documents and you can drag it onto the dock, or configure it like this:inlove:

If you put your recycle bin onto the dock it will still remain on your desktop, to hide it you need to go to Start/control panel/ folder options then click on view and scroll to the bottom, and where it says show recycle bin, just untick it. This is for Vista. if you can't find it in xp let me know.

So true..lol The beauty of this is you can hide it and move it wherever. I'm just lazy and had about 30 shortcuts on my desktop, this cleaned them up is all
