    With the littlies in mind (Age 4 to 6), shortcuts to their regulars do appear on their desktop (but that's half a dozen at most)

    There's also a shortcut to a folder where teachers can drop a shortcut to something required for a particular lesson (perhaps a website) The 2 teachers who use it keep it clear as it takes the class too long to find things otherwise!

    The bigguns (year 2 up) manage fine with the Start menu!

    Nice idea, think I might set something similar up myself. Thanks!

    My work PC seems to be far more cluttered than my home PC (a strict, no icon policy in place there). What concerns me is staff saving important work onto their desktop, which isn't backed up...

    Students can't change their desktop (CC3 prevents that).

    All you can do is make them aware of this. If they fail to take your advice, it's their loss

    I used to be untidy, my PC at home actualy has the icons meeting in the middle. However since getting my new PC at work I've been a good boy. I do have quite a few icons but they're all useful and all properly arranged.
