    I'm using this tweak to remove (onely) the librarie icon from my desktop:

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{031E4825-7B94-4dc3-B131-E946B44C8DD5}]
    @="UsersLibraries"
    "Removal Message"="@shell32.dll,-9047"


    But when i config my mediacenter in w7, i came to the conclusion that it doesn't store the paths of pictures and video's anymore.
    Also tried to add these pictures and video directories within Mediaplayer, but with no result..:confused:

    So my question to you all is....is this a known problem, or am i doing something wrong?

    I really want to remove the librarie icon from my desktop, but i am a Mediacenter user (so need too set my directories for pictures an video).

    If you have the same problem, let me know (tell me what fix you have used).

    Hope to here from you people here :)

    Did you try right-clicking and unpin this program from taskbar? Should work.

    The problem is not the taskbar icon, but the desktop icon.
    If i remove the icon with the tweak shown in first post, it breaks up MP and MCE.
    It also breaks the explore option in the start orb.

    I've never seen a Libraries icon on the desktop... Can't you just drag it to the recycle bin?
    Or maybe Right Click the deskto -> Personalize -> Change Desktop Icons and untick it if it shows?

    In Windows 7 there really is an icon on the desktop called Libraries, and also one called homegroups.
    These tho can be removed, but the tweak thad helps you doing that breaks MCE and MP, also explorer option in start orb.

    Like i told in first post.....


    noboddy ?

    Here is what I used. Never had any problems in MCE. Did not write these, were found online. This will fully remove libraries, not just the ICON.

    Remove_Libraries.reg
