Delete Desktop Shortcuts

Modified on Mon, 11 Apr 2022 at 10:27 AM

Custom desktop shortcuts will be saved to your OneDrive, so that they can be synced across any device. Sometimes you will have multiple copies of the same shortcuts.


e.g I have multiple Teams shortcuts.


You can easily manage this by deleting them from your OneDrive:


Through File Explorer

1. Open your OneDrive

2. Select Desktop folder

3. select the shortcuts you want to remove and delete them


The shortcuts are now removed from the desktop


Through Office 365

1. Open OneDrive and select My Files

2. Open the Desktop folder 



Select the shortcuts and then press delete.
