remove Homegroup Icon



Had the same problem after an update of 20 not important components.
Can’t tell witch one caused the problem.

This worked for me win 7 – 64 bit home premium

1) Drive to “Folder Options”
2) Click “View”
3) Scroll down to “Use Sharing Wizard (Recommended)” it must be checked
4) Un-Check  the Check -box
5) Click “Apply”……the Icon will be removed from your desktop
6) Re-Check the Check-box …..the icon will not be back

Have fun and try not to mess around with registry 🙂 if you do not know exactly what are you doing


About yhtian

I am an academic researcher working on Offshore Geotechnical Engineering. My blog aims to write down some work related trivial things and tricks about software, programming. It is basically a memo for me to back up some thoughts and small details. But I am more than happy if someone would visit and discuss.
