I heard that if you have a lot of files on your desktop, that when you log in to your profile, all those files are loaded and this slows down the log in and uses memory resources. Is this true? Thank in advance. :thumbsup:

Desktop is actually a folder whose contentes are displayed by default. Much quicker to just place a shortcut to the folder that contains the files on the desktop instead.

Pretty true. As long as half of your Desktop are not filled with icons and stuff, you should be quite alright.
