How to disable "There are unused icons on your desktop" (and save your sanity for another day)


Microsloth has a bad habit of knowing what we need as users better than we do. Hence there are wonderful notifications like “There are unused icons on your desktop. Click here…”

Fortunately, there’s a way to turn this off, as detailed in this posting.

But why the horribly complex, roundabout way to find it? And how about that for an unintuitively-placed preference?!

It’s my not-so-humble opinion that any time you have an alert that pops up regularly, it should also tell you either how to disable it or allow you to disable it right on the spot. But that’s just me. I’m spoiled.
