Pretty please leave this here and I'll delete it right away. I just need a quick answer. I'm at my mother in laws and trying to help her with her computer. She has too many things coming up on the screen when the computer starts. How do we get rid of items? Thanks!!!

If it is just the icons you want removed, right click on them and then delete. That just deletes the Icon shortcut, not the whole program. You can still go in your start menu and use the programs.
