This is such a simple matter, I was surprised not to find anything when I did a forum search -- though I'm sure the answer is out there.
I'm a fan of a clean desktop. However, after installation I have 4 internal hard drive icons on my desktop that I'd rather not see ... two Windows partitions, 2 linux partions. I only want to see the "Computer" and "home" icons.
I'd prefer not to have the icons for the internal drives show up on the desktop ... but if I plug in a USB key, I would like that icon visible.
Where/how can I control this behaviour?
