    I recently heard from someone that the number of icons on your desktop slows your system down. That doesn't sound right to me, so I thought to pose the question here.

    Thanks,

    Not really. The only slowdown that could possibly happen is the rendering of the images on the screen. With a video card 4 years or newer... it really isnt a problem.

    The icons should not, but I heard that if you are using Active Desktop, it can take up to 20% of your RAM.

    Sounds like confusion between desktop and systemtray.
