    Well, the title is pretty much self-explanatory, but for the people who didnt catch it...

    I just want to remove that "My Bluetooth Places" shortcut that got installed on my desktop when I installed my USB Bluetooth Dongle. When I right-click, there is no option to remove or anything.

    Any help is appreciated, and thanks in advance

    What if you uninstall your dongle drivers?

    The dongle wont work anymore if I do that.

    The brand of my dongle is Kensington, if that helps any.

    True, but is there any other way of removing it. I really dont want to install another program to get rid of an icon. If it comes down to it though, I might go this way.

    Thanks for the replies

    Found this on another site. Dont know if it works cos I havent needed to try it.

    "HOW TO REMOVE THE ANNOYING "MY BLUETOOTH PLACES" ICON FROM THE DESKTOP THAT DOESN'T WANT TO GO AWAY!
    Open up the registry editor (Start> Run> regedit)
    Browse to the following key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curr entVersion\Explorer\Desktop\NameSpace\{6af09ec9-b429-11d4-a1fb-0090960218cb}

    Delete it. If you are paranoid, choose to export it first (right-click> export), so you can add it back later if you need to.
    Restart your computer for the changes to take effect."

    I wasn't able to do that.

    That didn't work for me either.

    All gone! It's not there anymore. My only concern is, when I deleted that in my registry, is it going to mess with anything else? Thanks for the replies guys!

    Probably wont mess anything up. But if it does you can import it back into the registry by double clicking the file you saved (if you did save it first).
