Is there a way to save your desktop shortcuts somewhere so if you have a cool background they don't interfere by appearing on the background? I don't wanna delete my shortcuts, because for example, I have a shortcut to play a game, and in the folder on the start menu, there isnn't a way to play it. It says play online or uninstall, not play game, so I don't wanna delete the icons. But then I found some cool wallpapers and having the dk shortcuts ruins them...

Sure. In XP, right click on the desktop, hover over 'arrange icons' and uncheck 'Show desktop icons'. This will hide them. To get them back, reverse the process...(may take a few seconds for your system to do hits...in both directions).
