If you are using Xp
Use the Desktop Cleanup Wizard to remove shortcuts that you don't use from your desktop. The wizard automatically runs every 60 days, or you can start it yourself whenever you want.
Put them back if you wish by clicking  and dragging them from  the  programs menue and that wil creat the icon on the desktop.
