Dear all,

Just a quick query.


I use Windows XP. I\'m a bit of a desktop fan - much to the annoyance of anyone else using the computer! - and tend to store files to go out on my desktop. Today I went to clean up the desktop and saved some of my desktop items in other files. I deleted the relevant items on the desktop and went to \'arrange items by; type\' to line the remaining icons up. However copies of all the files I had deleted flashed up onto the desktop (for example a file \"Translation\" would come up as \"Copy of Translation\"). I tried again to delete the files, sending them to the Recycle Bin and then deleting them from the Recycle Bin. I then had \"Copy of Copy of Translation\".


What am I doing wrong, and how do I get rid of the files!?

I would be grateful for any ideas.

Many thanks in advance,


Amy
