Howdy folks,
I have a question for you about removing icons from the Xfce desktop, when I right click and select delete it gives me a warning saying the icon and file will be permanently deleted do you want to proceed.  Since I am still new to Linux Lite and all things Linux I am a bit perplexed being a Windows OS user for all these decades, in Windows I can move desktop icons at will without consequences.  In the desktop settings I can set to minimize or none and they disappear but that isn't what I'm trying to achieve.  Can someone give me some insight to this dilemma.  I am running 5.8 dual boot with W7 home premium.

Best regards,
Vint
