Displaying selected icons of Internet Explorer on desktop.

This setting enables you to display selected Internet Explorer icons on the desktop.

Tweak for : Windows 98, Windows Me, Windows XP, Windows 2003, Windows 2000, Windows Vista
This setting makes selected icons like "Internet Explorer History" and "Temporary Internet Files (Disk Cache)" to appear on the desktop.

For this, go to Start > Run menu, enter “regedit” and navigate to the registry path listed below. You can create a subkey under “NameSpace” as “{FF393560-C2A7-11CF-BFF4-444553540000}” which corresponds to “Internet Explorer History” and “{7BD29E00-76C1-11CF-9DD0-00A0C9034933}” which represents “Temporary Internet Files (Disk Cache)”.

However, if you want to remove these icons from desktop, delete the respective subkey.

Refresh view of your computer for the changes to take effect.

The added Internet Explorer folder icon folders can neither be accessed nor deleted from the desktop.
