I get ride off all the desktop icons trough the xfce desktop settings. I use icons for minimized apps only.
Thanks, that worked, did as well away with getting a menu with mouse click. I never use any icons at all. With some desktops one can edit the icons and choose which one to use, deleted them etc I have not found yet where to do this with xfce4. Since I do not use xfce4, anyhow once VL5.9 is stable it does not really matter. I am just curious.
