Answered by Willian Lymon

To remove an app from your desktop but not delete it, follow these steps:

1. Right-click on an empty space on your desktop. This will bring up a context menu with various options.

2. From the context menu, select “Personalize.” This will open the Personalization settings window.

3. In the Personalization settings window, click on the “Themes” option located on the right side. This will open the Themes settings.

4. Scroll down to the “Related settings” section, and you will find an option called “Desktop icon settings.” Click on it.

5. A new window will appear, showing the available desktop icons. Here, you can choose which icons you want to remove from your desktop without deleting them.

6. Uncheck the box next to the desktop icon(s) you want to remove. For example, if you want to remove the app icon, uncheck the box next to it.

7. Once you have unchecked the desired icon(s), click on the “Apply” button to save the changes.

8. click on the “OK” button to close the Desktop Icon Settings window.

By following these steps, you will be able to remove the app icon from your desktop while keeping the app itself intact on your computer. This way, you can easily access the app from the Start menu or the app list without cluttering your desktop with unnecessary icons.
