    Does it slow down the computer by having icons on the desktop?

    If you like icons on your desktop is it better to have them in folders rather than individual icons?

    I keep no shortcut on my desktop because I like my desktop clean and use the space for “temporary” files I’m working with, like a text I’m writing, a picture I’m editing or materials I’m using for a blog post.
    But keeping the shortcuts on desktop does not affect computer performances anymore (but it were doing a few years ago). It’s up to you how you want to keep them.
    I keep the Shortcuts in my C: Drive in a folder named “Shortcuts” and then add that folder to taskbar as a Toolbar, so I have quick access to porgrams I use often:

    I do both, cause I will be on a link & its so easy to create a shortcut to the desktop”‘ or add to favorites, then go back & read and delete.

    Yup, I agree, I keep them on Desktop first and then come back to delete or move them.
