Recently had some problems with my kids going to internet sites they
shouldn't have so I set up a user profile for each of them with parental
controls to the max. I was also hoping to keep all of their games and music
seperate, different ages, different intrests. How do I discontinue the public
desktop. I dont want a game that my kids load showing up on my desktop or
vise verse

any help would be appreciated

Hi Kevin,

A lot of programs install automatically for all users, hence their shortcuts
will be on the Public Desktop. If you navigate to here, you can remove the
shortcuts:

C:\Users\Public\Desktop

Then you can recreate the appropriate shotcuts on the individual users
desktops:

C:\Users\Username\Desktop
